9 artworks / 74 exhibition

Chen Ching-Yuan received his M.F.A. in 2013 from the School of Fine Arts of the Taipei National University of the Arts. In recent years, Chen Ching-Yuan attempts to capture through his painting the subtle sensibility that weaves through literature, mythology, and history in different cultural contexts. The artist's unique compositions coalesce into a constellation of images where the absence of the temporal element and the fragmentation of meaning elicit unexpected narrative parallels between the artist's imaginary worlds and the essence of humanity.

Cocooned in a romanticist ambience, Chen Ching-Yuan's work is built on a sense of déjà vu that enshrouds mystifyingly surrealist narratives that appear at first glance pregnant with fixed and careful connotations. An overflow of subtle and fragmented symbols pervades his painting, where sensory experiences are reconstructed with plausible, fleeting narrative clues. His intricate palette and loose compositions collapse connections between each work, turning every piece into a fable tinged with the artist’s profound consciousness.

Chen’s recent solo exhibitions include What am I ? If I cant be yours, TKG+, Taipei (2016); Un title, ITPark, Taipei (2015); (flare-s) Chen Ching-Yuan × TKG+ Projects, TKG+ Projects, Taipei (2013); Staggering Matter, TKG+, Taipei (2011) and The LiQUiD STATE, VT Artsalon, Taipei (2009). His work has been exhibited in notable exhibitions internationally, including 8th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia (2015); Asia Triennial Manchester, Manchester, UK (2014); The 7th Busan International Video Festival, Space Bandee, Busan, Korea (2010).
