Galerie du Monde_Fong Chung-Ray Enlightenment_Evite

Galerie du Monde is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Fong Chung-Ray, the influential contemporary artist, who as a member of The Fifth Moon Group, a group of contemporary Chinese artists, were at the forefront of the modern art movement in Taiwan in the 1960s. Titled Enlightenment: 1998-2018, this exhibition showcases 15 works from the last two decades, with some pieces that have never been seen in the public before. This solo exhibition comes after five collaborations between the artist and Galerie du Monde, including the retrospective of Fong Chung-Ray’s work in 2015, three Fifth Moon Group exhibitions at the gallery in 2016 and 2017, and at Art Basel Hong Kong in 2017.

In the past six decades, Fong Chung-Ray has trailblazed an experimental fusion of Chinese traditional ink art and abstract expressionism, a result of a unique amalgamation of cultural, stylistic, and period influences in his life. The new works in Enlightenment: 1998-2018 offer a glimpse into Fong’s consistent and highly conceptualized techniques, highlighting the ephemeral character of his oeuvre and his identity. With references to abstract expressionism, ink art, Buddhism and materiality, coupled with original technique, Fong renders his works as idiosyncratic in such a way that allows for a deeper contemplation.
