Beacon in the Storm: The Art of Pang Jiun
Born into an artistic family in Shanghai in 1936, the respected artist is a master of ‘Eastern Expressionism’ and steadily continues to create art well into his 90s. In this retrospective, 48 of his works are showcased; the exhibition consists of nine sketches from the 1970s, as well as 39 paintings from recent years. Through the juxtaposition of works from different eras, the artist’s skill and vast exploration of colour can be admired and appreciated.
Throughout his consistent artistic journey, the artist has always harboured a sense of mission to create Chinese oil paintings. Through his keen and delicate sense of colour, and vivid, precise lines, he captures moments of enlightenment in life, expressing boundless passion for existence. Staged at the Chantal Miller Gallery, this exhibition is a must-see.
