iPRECIATION proudly presents a solo exhibition of Singapore artist Tay Bak Chiang 鄭木彰. Titled The Fisherman and the Woodcutter「漁樵問答」, this solo exhibition will feature more than 10 of his latest works.
Tay Bak Chiang 郑木彰 (b. 1973, Malaysia/Singapore) graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore in 1995 and studied at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China. Tay has always been inspired by nature. To him, nature is perfection, balance and harmony. He also believes his work should bear the imprint of his environment and reflect the spirit of contemporary times, even if it is rooted in Chinese ink painting. In his recent works, he continues to push the boundaries and contemporize the genre of Chinese painting through the use of acrylic and pigments on canvas. Tay has held many successful solo exhibitions to date: Fa Zi Hua Sheng 《法自画生》 (2003), Between Breaths 《呼吸之间》(2010), Ingenuity 《天工》 (2011), Hear the Wind Sing 《且听风吟》 (2012), The Breath of A Blade 《剑气》 (2013), Sentience 《顽石》 (2014), The Story of the Stone 《石头记》(2014), Cleavages Fractures Folds 《斧劈皴》 (2014), Blue White Vermilion 《青花 • 朱印》 (2015), The Chivalrous Hero 《侠之大者》(2015), From A Distance 《隔帘看月 • 隔水看花》(2016), Revisit 《回鸣》(2016) and From Stone to Mountains 《积石成山》(2018). Tay’s works can also be found in private and public collections.
