Rossi & Rossi are delighted to present Darkness Into Beauty, our second solo show by Tibetan artist Tenzing Rigdol, whose work will later this year be featured in the Metropolitan Museum, New York.
With a whole new array of work, Rigdol’s paintings are the product of collective influences and interpretations of age-old traditions; they are influenced by philosophy, often addressing issues of human conflict and have strong political undertones, an unavoidable element in his art.
Tenzing Rigdol is a contemporary Tibetan artist whose work ranges from painting, sculpture, drawing and collage, to digital, video-installation, performance art and site-specific pieces. He has been widely exhibited internationally, and his artworks are included in museums as well as public and private collections worldwide. He has also published three collections of poetry, ‘“R”—The Frozen Ink’ (2008), ‘Anatomy of Nights’ (2011) and ‘Butterfly’s Wings’ (2011), printed by Tibet Writes. He lives and works in New York.
