Seeing the Mountains – Traditional Chinese Paintings by JIANGANG SU

Opening May 15, 2024 7-9pm

May 15 – June 6, 2024


Lipont Gallery once again teams up with Vancouver-based artist Jiangang Su to hold a Chinese painting and calligraphy exhibition in summer 2024, providing audiences and collectors in the Greater Vancouver area with an opportunity to learn and collect traditional Chinese art works.

“Stone” is an important aesthetic object in Chinese traditional culture. Taihu stone is a stone with unique beauty. It is the beauty created by the uncanny workmanship of nature and contains the curious feelings of literati. The phenomenon of appreciation of strange stones existed in the Wei, Jin, Southern and Northern Dynasties, and the appreciation of strange stones reached a new climax in the Song Dynasty (960-1279 A.D.) To this day, stone appreciation has always held an irreplaceable place in the hearts of literati.

Seeing the Mountains is based on the theme of scholars admiring stones, and the method of construction brush and ink is expressed in the form of tea scrolls hangings to create an elegant atmosphere in the study room. The calligraphy content of the exhibition includes simple and square official script and exquisite and elegant fan-shaped regular script, which is full of the feelings of Jiangnan literati.

Jiangang Su is an artist of classical Chinese painting and calligraphy based on Vancouver. He is known for his gongbi style paintings, versatile styles of calligraphy and seal carving. He studied in China under renowned maestro Yan Gongda from the age of thirteen. Besides being a dedicated artist, Su is also an avid art educator and collector of Chinese arts. His artworks have been featured in numerous exhibitions, charity auction events and media coverage in China and internationally.

The exhibition opens on Wednesday May 15th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at Lipont Gallery, 4211 No. 3 Road Richmond, BC.

The exhibition opens from May 15th to June 6th, 2024 Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm with extended hours to 8:00pm on Tuesdays.
