Lot Essay

While constructing the landscape composition, Chu Teh-Chun applied fiercely red colours filled with poetry and romance at the tip of his brush in No. 134 (Lot 19) in 1962. Chu’s spontaneous brushworks seems engender a dream-like experience that glides through the painting. At the same time, he forgoes the singular vision of achieving variations in ink-wash. In his expedition for abstract inspired by Western art, Chu simultaneously succeeded to allude the structure of the soaring peaks and waterfalls poetic in the grandeur Chinese landscapes.
