Up-and-coming Taiwanese artist Hou Chung-ying (侯忠穎) will hold a solo exhibition featuring fantastic hand-themed oil paintings at the National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall from March 14 through April 2.
Hou, a recent graduate from the MA program of The Prince's School of Traditional Arts(PSTA) in London, received his diploma from His Royal Highness, Prince Charles of Wales, the royal patron of the art school.
His works have been collected by major award organizers and cultural institutions, including the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, the Chimei Art Awards, and theSPEYTraditionalArts Foundation in Scotland.
Hou received funding from a partnership program sponsored by the PSTA and the SPEY Foundation in 2011, becoming the London-based art school's first Taiwanese student. His "Invisible Hands” oil paintings series were highly commended by the PSTA faculty.
The three-week exhibition in Taipei will display Hou's works from 2004 till the present, with each piece reflecting his unique outlook on life. Hands in his paintings can be interpreted as icons, storytellers, or simply gorgeous landscape.
