Lot Essay

'By fusing Western colour ideology and the abstract Lines of calligraphy, I hope to mold a new style of abstract painting: one that can express the ineffable qualities of classical Chinese poetry, and abstract conceptions that can only be sensed or felt. Given what the Western critics have been saying about my work, they seem to have understood that I am searching for something different from those of Western abstract artists.' – Chu Teh-Chun
