I cannot do this particular artist justice in reproducing some of the amazing contemporary ink paintings that are now on show at Bath’s Museum of East Asian Art – just across the road from the Assembly Rooms and on the edge of The Circus..
Wu Lan-Chiann’s wonderful examples of East-West art fusion are exhibited behind glass and your Director was having problems with reflections. I seriously suggest you go and see them for yourselves.
At the core of her work is a personal contemplation of universal themes that connect people across time, space and culture – using a painting tradition that is centuries old.
She blends eastern and western creative processes into an authentic style marked by decisive but delicate brushwork and a subtle use of colour.
Wu Lan-Chiann has exhibited her art in the United States, Taiwan and Japan. This is her first solo exhibition in the UK and a bit of an honour – if not a major coup – for the Museum of East Asian Art in Bath.
Wu Lan-Chiann now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
She has missed Thanksgiving this year – to launch her Bath exhibition – and l could see was a little sad to know her family were so far away.
She is a graceful and talented artist who has successfully brought two worlds together in her work.
The exhibition continues through to May 15 2016.
