Ancient tunes

Modern Blue-green landscape by Xue Song

Went to see Mind-Scape V, modern Chinese paintings at the 3812 Gallery (on until 17 August 2019).  There are are 2 or 3  works by each of 8 artists.  Many are seemingly abstract, but with landcsape or figures emerging as you look.

I particularly liked the collages by Xue Song – the fragments are of ancient Chinese art, grouped according to the substance represented.  For example, the sky in the one above is calligraphy characters.  If you were a scholar you could recognise the source.  This forms an interesting comparison to the bapo paintings which look like collages.
