This is not landscape
ColorBox Hangzhou is pleased to present “This is not landscape,” a collaborative group exhibition featuring three independent artists in our incubative art gallery, ColorBox Space.
Landscape painting has always been a subject matter in both mainstream Eastern and Western art history. Whether in the form of a traditional Chinese landscape painting, pre-15th Century commissioned works for churches or rich nobles, or from the romanticism of J.M.W. Turner to Mark Rothko’s color field series, landscape paintings have gone through multiple renditions of interpretation as time evolved.
Belgian surrealist artist, Rene Magritte, once raised a poignant question about the relationship of images and words to his audiences in his most notable painting, The Treachery of Images (This is Not a Pipe) (1929). The two paintings of the Pipe he created successively, initiated a discussion about the dialectical relationship between “words”, “image” and “object.”
In contemporary art today,traditional systems of reality, visual, and concept is constantly being reinterpreted by new ideas. Through the art of these three artists, who were primarily inspired by nature and landscape, we once again juxtapose the relationship between“reality”, “visual”, and “concept.” These terms correspond with the fundamental concepts that make up nature, abstract landscape painting, and landscape painting.
The exhibition questions the audience: Is what you are viewing a direct interpretation of a landscape painting? Or is it a result of the subtextual relationship between reality, visual, and concept?
“Landscape” explores not only its long history in mainstream art, but also what it means to viewers in its endless possibility of representation with nature. It challenges the audience to speculate the dialectical relationship between the three artists and their conceptual interpretations of landscape painting.
ColorBox Hangzhou is pleased to present “Expanded Habitat,” a collaborative group exhibition with Unlisted Projects at ColorBox Space.
Habitat, a term typically referring to a space in which an organism lives, find food, shelter, protection and reproduce, the exhibition explores the constant changing and expanding concept of the habitat. It is not only defined by all the physical interactions within biological or social spaces, but it is also redefined conceptually through transformative processes created by a collective experience or personal memories.

We are pleased to present TimeLine—2017 Lunar New Year Art Show, an exhibition of works by a group of Chinese artists on January 19 - 20, 2017, at Rogue Space, Chelsea, NY.
In our contemporary era, it becomes difficult to distinguish the lasting artistic accomplishments and groundbreaking work with each passing year. Art has underdone the“fast food” phase to become “fast art.” In the context of Chinese art, from Republican to the Maoist years and into the Reform and new ink art era, we find ourselves immersed in an era categorized by digital art and new media today. In this exhibition, we invite eight artists who exemplify outstanding characteristics in distinct fields. Their work, while diverse in medium and output, comes together to present an important view on how Chinese contemporary artists expound their views on society, nature, information, and beliefs.
