Treasure in Liaoning Museum, Shenyang, China  
by
12/1/13 Posted 12/1/13

Liaoning Museum in Shenyang, my home city in Manchuria, the capital city of Qing Dynasty before the Manchu people conquered the Han China inside the Great Wall and made Beijing new capital, had many art and craft treasures, mostly as the legacy of the former imperial glory. Due to the fragility of those Chinese paintings and calligraphy on silk or paper, and my dwelling in the U.S. for more than half of my life now, I hadn't the chance to view most, if any, of those the most valuable works collected in that museum, till last September, when...

The Work ahead of Awareness  
by
8/16/13 Posted 8/16/13

I pursue abstract, real, and meaningful form, simultaneously. In order to arrive at a pure, expectant, materially solidified vision, I bring the work out of careful seeing, while resisting the temptation to determine and fix likeness or identifiability of subject matter. This is like an ever-so-clear revelation that is beyond one's understanding as it is forming and increasingly significant and widely usable once it has been born. Although I am quite deliberate and strive to be as aware as I... [more]

Work Statement

                       All these pieces are made in the context of dependent arising and impermanence, meaning they will age, become fragile, be affected by light yet they will remain as those things we search for and cherish  possibly in the attic or basement, an archeological site, or a memory. It is the nature of all things to decay yet remain.Interdependence is a truth of life. Look around; there is no one thing that exists wholly independent of anything else. Everything in our lives arises i... [more]

Wang Tiande at Chambers Fine Art May 5th, 2011 - June 25th, 2011
Posted 5/15/11

The great Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges once imagined a library filled with books of every language, written using all possible combinations of words and letters, which added up to a lot of indecipherable texts. Borges called the story “The Library of Babel” and sitting in the reading room of Wang Tiande’s exhibition, 3,720: Recent Works by Wang Tiande, I had the feeling I was in a wing of Borges’ library. A nice wooden table sat in the center of a well-lit, noiseless room. Wooden bookshel... [more]
