About the work :

Research II is a painting by contemporary Taiwanese artist Yiching Chen.

An arrangement of natural elements, such as leaves, branches and flowers stand out from a light background. The transparent effect created through the use of natural pigments is accentuated by the artist’s pale coloured palette. A squirrel appears in the foreground, standing on its hind legs. The abstract composition of this work recalls traditional Japanese prints, where rodents are a recurring motif.

Chen Yiching is an expert of «nihon-ga», a form of traditional Japanese (nihon)painting (ga). This very demanding technique consists of using only the most natural of materials (wood, paper, rock, sand, bone) to create the artwork. The pigments, obtained thanks to minerals such as azurite or malachite, are mixed with glue (nikawa) made from the skin and bones of fish or other animals. The paper is glued to wood or stretched silk (marouflage technique). The principle is like that of water-colour and the notion of space is created thanks to (yohaku) empty spaces.

The artist gets all of her inspiration from nature. Her paintings (floral compositions, cross-sections of forests, some animals) are proof of this. She expresses her sensibility by use of a harmonious language which is both controlled and delicate.

This artwork is sold unframed.
