Tang Contemporary Art doubles its presence in Thailand with a brand new space relocated to Asia's Premier Arts and Cultured Living Shopping Center; River City Bangkok. We are proud to announce the opening of "2.5D" a solo exhibition of Chen Zihao curated by Sun Wenjie. The opening will be held on October 4 (6:00 – 8:00 pm).
Celebrated his recent oeuvre, materials such as thin, craggy rocks, metal, and minerals, or highly saturated blocks of color are inserted into the textures of abstract oil paintings placed within frames of iron, wood, copper, stainless steel, and colored acrylic. The artist calls these brightly-colored works “land art in 2.5 dimensions.” This “2.5 dimensions” is a humorous turn of phrase, as the works are not the dimensional descent of three-dimensional reality described in science fiction. Chen Zihao primarily uses oil painting to record multiple landscapes that are not present; these works are obviously different from, but still, reference land art. Chen describes the various magnificent scenes that he has experienced, and after re-awakening those memories, he uses thick brushstrokes to present geographic textures, creating Informe-style works. His images are often birds-eye views, with connecting and overlapping blocks of color, as if layering the patterns of the earth and the colors of the sky based on his own change in perspective.

Chen Zihao graduated from Fine Arts School Affiliated to China Central Academy of Fine Arts, A bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Alfred University, and study in Rhode Island School of Design.
