Chu Teh-Chun Biography

Chu Teh-Chun’s poetic landscapes lie at the gateway of his own fantasies. Travelling in the imaginary, Chu rides the depth of his interior symphony, limitless. The constraints of his cross-cultural influence are abolished with a non-perspective limitation driven by intuition. The breathtaking views of his endless promenade through China and key locations brought about the dialogue between art and nature. Influenced by Nicolas de Staël, Chu explores an abstract style. His technique and generous strokes evoke the subtlety of art as a universal language in lyric abstraction. The canvases are filled with a choice of oil paints, watercolours as well as calligraphy searching and discovering the pervading truth of the vision. The perspectives are infinite in a synthesis of Chinese philosophy and Western tradition, combining as well as superimposing the four elements; air, water, earth and fire.
