Bi Yuan Cheng "Profound Radiance": November 6 – 14

“While almost every western painting is plotted on the vanishing-point perspective system, Bi arranges his planes like stage sets with empty, mystic spaces between. He told me that in western perspective, the farther elements become smaller, but in his paintings they don’t. His compositions are haunting, or immense.”  Robert Amos, Times Colonist
