Early Asian Art specialists, Michael Goedhuis Gallery, present an exhibition of classically trained ink painter, Lo Ch’ing’s internationally renowned works on paper. The works are in dialogue with both the Chinese masters and their contemporary counterparts. The exhibition entitled ‘Lo Ch’ing: In Conversation with the Masters’ opens to the public from 24th June – 1st September, with the Private View taking place Monday 23rd June 6 - 8:30pm.
Lo Ch’ing believes: “The purpose or ambition of an artist is to try to capture the imagination of his time. And I think this is my responsibility to create a graphic pattern or image that is deeply rooted in Chinese tradition but at the same time show the future of this culture. My duty is to enrich the vocabularies of this language”
Lo Ch’ing trained at a young age in the art of the classical court tradition of ink painting, and went on to complete an MA in comparative literature from the University of Washington. Lo Ch’ing became extremely well versed in describing his references between his contemporary geometric motifs and traditional methods. The British Museum, Ashmolean Museum, Asia Society NYC, and Museum Fur Ostasiatische Kunst Berlin all hold Lo Ch’ing works in their highly regarded collections. He has showcased many international solo exhibitions across Asia, Europe and America.

Lo Ch’ing will be giving an artist talk about his practice at the high end art and antiques fair Masterpiece from 11:30am on 26th June at Michael Goedhuis’ stand B5. This talk will be an interesting, eye opening talk into Lo Ch’ing’s developed visual language. Masterpiece runs from 26th June – 2nd July and will be well worth a visit.
