Future Retrospective: Master Shen-Long,

Details

For more than 50 years, Master Shen-Long – a multidisciplinary artist and contemporary master of the classical Chinese literati perfections of painting, poetry and calligraphy – has pioneered new approaches to painting, making him one of the most innovative ink artists of this generation. In the early 1990s, he developed a new abstract ink method for paper and canvas, resulting in richly detailed reversible works of art that blur the line between painting and sculpture and express unlimited time, space and endless movement.

Influenced by his deep understanding of Buddhist, Daoist and Confucian philosophies, Master Shen-Long’s bold and experimental work challenges and innovates upon tradition while raising important concepts regarding mankind’s relationship with the universe. This exhibition will not only serve as the artist’s mid-career retrospective, but it is also the artist’s first solo museum presentation in Texas.
