Gyeonggi Museum of Art is launching an exhibition titled, 《Asian Wave 2019: CHU-THE-I》 in Project Gallery located on the first floor from July 4 (Thursday) to September 1 (Sunday). The relay exhibition project ‘Asian Wave’ which was introduced this year to build a network in the contemporary art community in Asia selects noticeable Asian artists each year and introduces their artistic world views. The projects also explore ways to promote more diverse and experimental content through continuous research and archiving efforts.
CHU-THE-I, who is introduced by 2019 Asian Wave for the first time, was born in South Korea, however, continues the creative work in Taiwan. The artist has acquired an independent position in the contemporary abstract art scene in Taiwan. The exhibition will be introducing eight works of painting created by the artist after 2010, which shed light on the artist’s latest pattern of work. These artworks include the paintings that the artist created during his tenure as an exchange professor at Sungshin Women’s University in 2010. The year 2010 was the first year when the artist started to use an important tool for his work, latex. The screen shows the artist’s endeavor in familiarizing himself with a new material and experimenting with new forms. Through the exhibition, we would like to meet the abstract world created by the artist, who inherits traditions while continuously expanding his creative methods through new artistic experiments.
CHU-THE-I was educated in National Taiwan Normal University, École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs and École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He worked as a professor for the faculty of art at Taipei National University of the Arts from 1985, and recently retired last year.
