"My Journey: Xu Songbo"

15 November, 2017 - 20 January, 2018

Returning to Fabrik Gallery for his second exhibition, Professor Xu Songbo of the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts presents his new series of oil works inspired by the Tang Dynasty. Considered one of the most open and embracing periods in Chinese history, the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907) represented a golden age of cosmopolitan culture and a high point of Chinese civilization – an era full of poetry and fantasy. In “My Journey,” Professor Xu revisits the era’s love of the horse and the culture whose aristocracy valued horsemanship and the sport of archery. In creating this series of paintings with the horse as focal point, the artist creates a thematic extension of his previous "Tang Style," continuing his “dialogue” with the Tang Dynasty through time and space.
