A charity solo exhibition by Yang Yin-chai opened Jan. 13 in Hsinchu
County, showcasing the octogenarian artist’s signature works and industrial-influenced painting techniques.
Featuring 63 oil, pastel, traditional Chinese and watercolor pieces, the event offers a fresh take on Yang’s innovative use of glass, gravel and sawdust in her creations. It runs until Feb. 14 at Museum of Fine Arts operated by the Cultural Affairs Bureau under Hsinchu County Government.
CAB Director-General Tsai Jung-kuang said Yang is a trailblazer in experimenting with various materials and modern techniques. “The graduating, multilayered effect in her paintings appeals to art lovers from home and abroad. Her works reflect the color and vibrancy of a lifetime in Hsinchu County.”
Born in 1936, Yang is a self-taught artist who exhibited from 2002 to 2005 at the Louvre Museum and Salon of French Artists, as well as staging 26 solo exhibitions around Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
