Chinese Painting Oliver Gosling Tuesday 26 March 2019

In the first lecture we will look at paintings from the Tang dynasty to the Qing dynasty and at the ideas that shaped a unique pictorial language.This is followed by a lecture focusing on painting from the beginning of the 20th Century to the present.

In the afternoon Oliver Gosling will demonstrate Chinese brush work, and you will have a chance to put what you see into practice.

The application form is here.

Oliver Gosling

He lived in Tokyo for two years (1998-2000) and in Chongqing, China for seven and a half years from 2008.   Living in Chongqing was a rich and rewarding experience and he became immersed in an ever growing and diverse contemporary art scene. In the 21st century, in a vast, but little known Chinese city, growing at ferocious speed and confronting the economic and cultural challenges of such super-fast urbanisation, he noticed that questions of identity, dislocation and loss inevitably arise.
