Opening next month, de Sarthe Gallery will present a solo exhibition of Hsiao Chin, presenting sixty years of abstraction, harmony, and form. The renowned Shanghainese artist has been widely recognised for his contribution to Chinese abstract art, most notably from founding the Ton-Fan Art Group. Showcasing eighteen works created from 1955 to 2004, Chin is largely credited with spearheading the contemporary Taiwanese art movement through a series of groundbreaking exhibitions starting in 1957.

With a career spanning decades scattered across different continents, Chin became increasingly interested in representing the infinite and capturing the cosmos in his minimalistic works in the mid-1960s. Chin founded several important modern art movements following his relocation to Europe, as his art continues to be a journey of an inner quest.

The exhibition at de Sarthe Gallery reveals how Chin reaches a higher plane of understanding of the mysterious nature of life through meditative artistic practice, which he passionately portrays through his work.
