Tsong Pu’s oeuvre takes a riotous profusion of forms ranging from painting and sculpture to photography and installation, foremost his 1 cm² seals.
The artist replaced brushes with these seals and dipped the latter in ink paste, leaving imprints on the canvas check by check. Repetitively printing checked patterns on the canvas, the artist adjusted them to uniformity, a new incarnation of mechanical regularity, without compromising their subtle differences. “Variatus, ergo sum,” Tsong Pu argued. These contingent changes thus registered his inner world.
The “Nature of Nature” is an art series maintaining a unique atmosphere. It appears in tranquility if you look from a distance, yet you’ll find each check vibrating with dramatic tension when you take a close look. Drawing an allegorical reading from this series, a mountain seen is a mountain being for urban travelers, and only nature observers see the dynamic ecology unfolding before their eyes.
As a piece of “The Nature in Nature,” an engrossing art series by Tsong Pu, [Crazy Moon] features a warm tone of light orange reminiscent of that of the “moon” under the general impression. The seemingly static composition has been animated by the artist’s ingenious color scheme design with a touch of pink sprinkled on it, which also seems to echo the adjective “crazy” in the title of this work.
