Yiching Chen
Shelter by Chen Yiching - Contemporary nihonga, pine tree, green tones, pigments

2022

About the Item

Shelter is a unique painting by contemporary artist Chen Yiching. The painting is made with natural mineral pigments, copper leaf, Japanese paper mounted on wood, dimensions are 120 × 120 cm (47.2 × 47.2 in). The artwork is signed, sold unframed and comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. The artist has painted a tree that emerges from behind a misty cloud. We can see details in the conifer's trunk and pine needles thanks to Chen Yiching's preferred viewpoint, which is up close to the tree. The word "Shelter" may evoke a sense of safety when one is close to this forest tree. Nihonga literally means: ‘Japanese’ (nihon), ‘painting’ (ga). It keeps a close poetic relationship with the elements of nature, not only with subjects, but also with the materials used in its technical creation. Although traditional, this technique offers creative possibilities that can be constantly added to, especially with the use of colour. Indeed, this highly meticulous technique firstly requires the creation of the pigment (enogu) from crushed minerals and plants which once mixed with glue (nikawa) and water creates the paint, the raw material of Nihonga. Traditionally applied in several successive layers on mounted paper, this raw material, sometimes augmented by metal leaf, produces an impression of surprising transparency typical of Chen Yiching’s works.

    Urbex is the English acronym for urban exploration and is an activity that consists of searching for and locating abandoned infrastructure with the goal of visiting, photographing and conveying its contents, with particular involvement of methodologies from geography, anthropology, sociology to cultural studies. Her works have been in the past approached to the works of Anselm Kiefer (b. 1945) and Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1770), but in Gullotta's paintings the absence of color makes the spaces particularly ethereal, allowing them to be ideally lifted to new places and to new life. We often speak of a "brain drain," but in this case we are truly happy to be able to say that this is a "return," and an important one: an artist of international caliber who has decided to entrust her return to her homeland to Almach Art...
