Reflex Gallery in Amsterdam is pleased to announce an exhibition of Chen Nong. The Chinese artist became internationally recognized with his hand-painted photographs depicting events from the rich Chinese history. The gallery presents two new series: ‘Silk Road’ and ‘Scenes of Reflections’. The exhibition runs from 16 September until 11 November.
With his series about the Silk Road Chen Nong conjures up images of fabulous cities and exotic regions of long gone empires and great conquerors. Against the backdrop of ruins from the period of the Silk Road in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang, Chen Nong illustrates the decoration of his imaginative and colourful stories.
Apart from his wondrous images about the Silk Road, Chen Nong shows at Reflex Gallery also artistic works of his series ‘Scenes of Reflections’. With this impressive series Chen Nong refers to Buddhism and Zen in Chinese culture and history.
Born in Fuzhou of Fujian Province, China, Chen Nong (50) worked for a TV production before he started to do sculptures. In 1996 he established a photo studio in Fuzhou, and in 2000 a photo studio in Beijing, the city where he currently lives and works. Chen Nong’s works are included in the collections of the International Center of Photography in New York, National Museum of Art, Australia and Museum of Cultures, Basel. The San Francisco MoMA recently acquired eight works of the artist.
