Dynasty Gallery is delighted to announce that we will be hosting the opening event for TSNG Shang-Jie's latest solo exhibition "Wanping" on April 20th, 2024, at 4PM. The exhibition will run until June 8th.

TSENG Shang-Jie has devoted himself to wood carving for many years. His character sculptures, characterized by a sketch-like style, are often inspired by fleeting glances of people on the street and silent observations of the everyday environment from various perspectives, which in turn trigger his inner contemplation of the essence of art. TSENG's works have never aimed for precise representation of real-life; he avoids overly meticulous handling of his pieces to prevent them from feeling as still life. Instead, he excels in addressing "time" in his creations. During the carving process, he leaves traces of various stages such as cutting, sawing, grinding, sketching, and brushing. Whether it's the treatment of color or the marks left by carving tools, there's a rhythm to his work, allowing the pieces to convey a sense of the passage of time and generating more visual variation as a result.

The exhibition is titled "Wanping (in mandarin, Wan refers to ten thousand, while ping is a unit of area, 1 ping = 3.3m2)," reflecting the artist's exploration of the sphere of life and the imagination that accompanies it. One day, TSENG Shang-Jie passed by a green space called "Wanping Park (The park with an area of 33,000 m2)," and the staggering numerical unit sparked his curiosity and wonder. He began pondering what exactly ten thousand ping could represent. However, upon reflection, rather than being bewildered or shocked by the name, the artist found the boundless imagination intriguing. As he embarked on new creations, he gradually realized that the techniques and exploratory attempts in these works were also a form of infinite "expansion." When he thought about it, the first image that came to his mind was that green space.
