Jiang Han :
Far Away From Home
Roaming afar to study, traveling between Yan and Zhao.
Who says the road is hard, when my heart is free to go.
I've heard of the wise Ranyu, and secretly compared myself to the great Yan.
With a small boat, I cross the river at dusk, and two horses gallop towards the morning mist.
Amidst all this, there is true joy, forgetting how many mountains I've traveled.
This is a poem by the Ming dynasty poet Wang Yiwu, depicting his free-spirited and adventurous travels to seek knowledge and truth.
Similarly, the artist Jiang Han in this exhibition also shares the same spirit of exploration and reverence for the world. Through his artworks, he invites the viewers to embark on a journey of self-discovery and gain a new perspective on life, inspiring them to embrace a more expansive inner world and embark on a new journey.
About the Artist
Jiang Han is a rising artist who has been exposed to contemporary art since childhood. After studying in Australia and returning to China, he delved into Buddhist studies, traditional Chinese culture, and traditional art under the guidance of Ven. Benru, the abbot of Jingye Temple on Mount Zhongnan. Through his travels, he has accumulated and refined a unique artistic style.
Jiang Han follows the rich tradition of Chinese art, but he departs from his forebears through his contrasting colors and a wider, more colorful palette.
