My era: influenced by the atmosphere of late 70s’ conceptual art.

My way of expression: substituting the brush with a 1cm by 1cm chop to express color and content.

With the process of continuously stamping,

The canvas and I are brought closer to each other.

Minute after minute, the painting is taking shape with a steady heartbeat, mechanical, and repetitive motion.

The simple colors and shapes almost make the painting monochromatic.

Within the finished work, materials that emphasis natural light sources emerge.

This is an exploration of the depths of the universe.

Not choosing to use techniques of painting to create an “image,” rather, a process of “rubbing, reflecting, and echoing” is continuously repeated to “seal” and “confirm” the message.

Within the messages, a non-image-like cognitive meaning is conveyed.

Non-uniformity still exists.

Each stamp on the canvas has a minute variance.

Maybe, the repeating motion of “stamping” still contains a “consciousness.”

This self-projection of existence manifests in the form of subtle variations in stamping to create patterns in brightness, light to dark and dark to light.

Art from the Underground: Tsong Pu Solo Exhibition
May 22 to August 8, 2010
Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Galleries D, E and F

Tsong Pu has been active on the Taiwanese art stage since the early 1980s, becoming one of the island's senior-generation contemporary artists of today. Soon after he was born in Shanghai in 1947, he and his family moved around before ultimately settling in Taiwan. In his early years, Tsong Pu exhibited boundless enthusiasm for the idealistic world of art, especially European and American Abstract Expressionism. Armed with new concepts and different media, Tsong Pu returned from Spain in 1983 to hold his solo exhibition A Meeting of Mind and Materialat the Spring Gallery. His paintings for this exhibition were truly unprecedented, breaking with established rules of traditional painting, including perspective drawing, primacy of technique and fixed compositions. Simply put, Tsong Pu was not satisfied with these entrenched forms, and so, drawing inspiration from his immediate environment, he deployed his creativity and keen visual sensibility on an inexhaustible array of materials to explore new possibilities in painting.

In 1984, Tsong Pu was awarded the Taipei Fine Arts Museum sponsored Contemporary Art Trends in the R.O.C Exhibition. This significance of this award cannot be overstated, as it affirmed the excellence of avant-garde art, served as an index of progress for Taiwan's contemporary art world, and demonstrated that Tsong Pu's artistic evolution was closely aligned with that of the museum's. For a 1996 installation entitled You are the Beautiful Flower, Tsong Pu arranged sketches, canvasses painted with grid patterns, aluminum boards and ready-made objects, such as scissors, hammers, shovels, wrenches, stones and levels, on a large wall in the exhibition venue. The rich dialog which ensued positioned his grid patterns between painting and three-dimensional space, and presented his nomadic spirit in a process of seeking enlightenment from the common objects of everyday life.

Tsong Pu composes his abstract paintings using rational thinking, yet the work's expressive results are richly poetic and replete with progressive Utopian ideals. With his grids he expands the spiritual space of the exhibition venue, wandering between installation and painting, staying close to the patterns seen all around, and avoiding interference from concrete imagery at all costs. This prompts connections between viewers' abstract thinking and the artwork, and in this way establishes resonance. Since the 1980s, Tsong Pu has been developing his grid pattern painting style in works such as A Meeting of Mind and Material; Name and Warehouse; You Are the Beautiful Flower; Square White; Square Isn't Square, Circle Isn't Round, Time Doesn't Pass; and Thirteen Relativities between Two Squares in the Dark. The depth and breath of change in his work over the years is difficult to quantify, as he has indefatigably kept at his project of expanding the expressive potential of the grid, all the while deriving from it a boundless vitality. This exhibition includes over one hundred of Tsong Pu's works from each of his creative periods over the last thirty years, presenting a comprehensive account of the artist's visual language through sketches, paintings and installations from as early as 1978 to his most recent work.


莊普青少年時期,對藝術的理想世界充滿無比的熱情,尤其賞識橫掃歐美藝壇的「抽象表現主義」。 1983年,莊普從西班牙學成返台,以創新觀念和媒材變化的作品,
