LIANG G A L L E RY Taipei


About

LIANG G A L L E RY Located in Neihu Technology Park, Taipei, Taiwan. The 21-year-old Liang Gallery has a three-story building offering high-ceiling and well-lit exhibition space up to almost 2000 square meters. With its focus on Taiwan’s modern and contemporary art, it has worked with foundations or families of artists such as Chen Cheng-Po, Yang San-Lang, Chen Jr-Chi, Lee Mei-Shu, Chin Jun-Tso, and Paul Tien-Sheng to present art exhibitions of Taiwanese modern art masters, acknowledging their unreplaceable roles in Taiwan’s art history.

In recent years, Liang Gallery has also regularly presented highly acclaimed exhibitions featuring Taiwanese contemporary artists, including sculpture installations by Hsi Shih-Pin and Hsu WeiHui, photographic art by Hsieh Chun-Te and Wang Chien-Yang, as well as paintings by Huang YiSheng, King Fen-Hwa, Chang Tsui-Jung, Lin Hung-Hsin, Liu De-Lang, and Leo Wang between 2011 and 2013. It has indeed become one of the major private art sectors systematically promoting Taiwan’s contemporary art.

With our curatorial experiences for years, we wish to continuously further the internationalization of Taiwan’s contemporary art, providing well-organized exhibition plans, academic publications, and cultural exchanges among nations to lead artists as well as art lovers into a more expansive world of art. 4

HUNG-HSIN LIN Born in Yunlin, Taiwan in 1975, Lin Hung-Hsin received his MFA from the Graduate Program in Fine Arts at National Taiwan University of Arts.

Before being devoted to artistic practice as a full-time artist, Lin had been working as an advertising designer for almost 15 years. His paintings feature a realistic expression but are different from the objective representation of the American photorealism. Instead, he adopts a strong subjective perspective while combining two-dimensional vector symbols and images of visual spaces with his personal experiences and illusions. In his works, he intentionally simplifies the colors and the composition. Through the objects, the symbols, the colors, and the contours in the paintings, Lin creates a connection with the realistic subjects (figures) to visualize his inner perception of the surroundings.

He borrows the character “flâneur” from Walter Benjamin (1892-1940)’s works as the main subject in his works. With the face painted with white powder and the costume corresponding to the environment, the flâneur anonymously observes the city. The “flâneur” in Lin’s paintings is a complicated self-reflection of the artist, through which the artist offers himself a temporary getaway from the reality so that he can take shelter in his subconscious self-indulgence. Through these portraits in various sizes, Lin attempts to challenge viewers’ visual experience and the way they see a painting, creating a connection beyond time and space.

Lin Hung-Hsin has participated in many art competitions and received several awards in Taiwan. In 2011, he started to work with Liang Gallery to present exhibitions. He currently lives and works in Taipei. 18

YI-SHENG HUANG Born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 1981, Huang Yi-Sheng graduated from the Department of Fine Arts at National Taiwan Normal University with a specialization in Western Painting. Having worked on realistic painting for many years, Huang is best known for his delicate expression as well as a gentle metaphoric narrative style. Throughout his artistic practice, Huang has expected that his works provide a spiritual consolation. It is not his intention to demonstrate the skillful technique in his paintings or to create the comfortable atmosphere through the images painted with various pinks. Instead, he believes that art-making should stir the space of imagination which used to be motionless but yet extensive, encouraging viewers to realize that how they can either meditate or take a break in this peaceful and undisturbed land.

After graduating from the graduate school, Huang started exploring new possibilities in the use of colors in the recent series works The New Alien Land. In the year of 2010, the artist demonstrated the series works in the solo exhibition A Sterile Room for the first time. Huang has received several awards, including National Taiwan Museum of Fines Arts’ 2008 Collection Project for Young Taiwanese Artists, the Bronze Medal at the National Oil Painting Exhibition, the Merit Award at Taiwan Provincial Fine Arts Exhibition, the Merit Award at Da Dun Fine Arts Exhibition, the Honorable Mention at Nanying Art Exhibition, and the Nomination Award of Union Fine Art Award. His artworks have been exhibited in Osaka (Japan), Hong Kong, and Taiwan, and included in the collections of National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, the Kaohsiung City Government's Bureau of Cultural Affairs, Union Culture Foundation, Taiwan National Exhibition Committee for Arts, and etc. Huang currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan. 26
