Never missing a pace in the vibrant contemporary art arena, iPRECIATION will once again make a mark in the local art scene, with award winning Taiwanese photographer, Michael Chen (b. 1952). From 7 to 20 June, we will be showcasing Chen’s stirring black-and-white photographs of religious structures, captured during his far flung travels; including the Kalyan Mosque in Uzbekistan, Masjid-i Shah in Iran, Luxor Temple in Egypt and a handful of other spectacular, world renowned sites. Chen’s photographs effectively arrest the serenity and tranquillity embedded within these ancient domains of religious worship. The capacity to lock in the reverence and heavenly appeal of the surrounding atmosphere is evident of his gift for photography, coupled with a foresight for drawing attention and casting unique perspectives to specific motifs that would otherwise have evaded the eye of the viewer.

In 1974, Chen graduated with a B.A (Hons) in Arts from the Eastern Illinois University in U.S.A, and was later awarded a M.A. in Public Visual Communications (Photography) from the Southern Illinois University, U.S.A. in 1977. He is also the recipient of Purchase Prize (Illinois Arts Council) and various visiting grants to the UK and West Germany. His works are collected permanently at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, The Polaroid Corporation, Illinois Arts Council, as well as with various private collectors. Today, Chen is the director of Modern Art at Jeff Hsu’s Art, Taipei.

We hope to see you at the gallery for Chen’s debut exhibition in Southeast Asia, as the artist will be gracing the opening on 7 June, 6.30 pm.

Works are now available for preview at our gallery. For further information or artwork enquiry please contact enquiry@ipreciation.com or 65 6339 0678
