I Live Not in Myself, but I Become Portion of that Around Me features the works of 4 Singapore artists, Tan Choh Tee, Tong Chin Sye, Ho Sou Ping and Zhu Hong, and examine their varying approaches to landscape painting.
By the time of the Tang Dynasty (618 – 906), the art of Chinese landscape painting had already flourished into an independent genre. Although not formalised as a genre in the Western art world till the 16th Century, the tradition of landscape painting dates back to ancient times when the Greeks and Romans started to create wall paintings of landscapes and gardenscapes. As times and cultures evolved, how would such a classical genre translate into the unique productions of our local artists who have been broadly exposed to and trained in both Chinese and Western art practices?
