HSIAO Chin – To the eternal garden

The web section “Mosaics” has been updated adding the mosaics series To the eternal garden by the Chinese artist Hsiao Chin (蕭勤).

The series is composed by 13 mosaics realized by Lino Reduzzi and Hsiao Chin in the period 1992-2015, whose original sketches belong to the portfolio of paper works of the same name: it is a theme particularly close to the Chinese artist, who began to develop at the beginning of the Nineties.

For the realization of these glass works, Lino Reduzzi and Hsiao Chin worked side by side in order to create a specific new mosaic texture: the mosaics are made of colored Venetian smalto tesserae, meticulously hand-cut in small tiles and laid at different heights on various layers, in order to fully match the stylistic requirements expressed by the artist himself.

Some of these works were shown for the very first time in the retrospective exhibition Eighty years of energy: Hsiao Chin’s restrospect & prospect, that the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts of Taichung (Taiwan) organized in 2015 to celebrate Hsiao Chin’s 80th birthday.
