Tzu-Chi YEH

Tzu-Chi YEH studied at Chinese Culture University in Taipei, Taiwan before furthering his education at Brooklyn College of City University of New York, USA. He moved back to Taiwan after living in New York for 19 years in order to settle in Hualien, a city facing the east coast of Taiwan, with his family. His paintings almost always present a visual diary of his past in which place and memory merge in poetic depictions of natural scenery he holds dear to his heart. YEH 's works present the true beauty of Taiwan's mountains and seas, one that has never been revealed before and that offers a deep breath of beauty from life and nature. Through YEH's works we can see his dedication to painting and his beliefs, and the deep love and gratitude he feels towards the land where he was born and raised. Like a monk who prays as he passes through the mountains or a traveler who chants as he gazes at the sea, YEH is focused on pursuing a dialogue with nature, an endless exploration of art's soul.

YEH’s landscape and still-life works share many characteristics with portrait paintings; they emphasize contrasts in lighting and atmosphere between background and foreground, which accents the development of space. He uses precise changes in tone and hue to express a unified sense of light, and employs a minimalist composition and subtle arrangement, creating a profound tranquility and deep nostalgia. “My paintings present a certain period of time that has materialized and condensed in space”. As such, objects portrayed by YEH become monuments, and the landscape sacred and solemn. Under YEH’s brush, the subjects quietly unfold a monologue of their own.
