Wu Chi-Tsung’s Cyano-Collage Series: Massive, Abstract, Immersing Landscapes

Looking for an immersive abstract art experience, look no further than Wu Chi-Tsung’s Cyano-Collage series. These massive pieces will transport you into another world of blue landscapes and abstract compositions. Inspired by Shan Shui, or traditional Chinese painting of landscapes and photomontage, Wu creates these pieces by mounting strips of wrinkled cyanotype Xuan paper onto canvas. The masterpieces produced by this method are stunning works of art that will fascinate and delight!

Chi-Tsung began his career in Taiwan, where he received a bachelor’s degree from the Taipei National University of the Arts. He presently works in Taiwan and Berlin, Germany. His creative approach is to combine eastern and western art techniques with modern and traditional. This fondness for juxtapositions may be seen in his Cyano-Collage works.

Chi-Tsung invented a method to imitate the calm beauty of Chinese painting and the visual impact of photomontage. “In traditional Chinese Shan Shui, ink and brush strokes are utilized to express natural scenery. However, in Eastern culture, experimental photography is used in place of ink and brush strokes to interpret landscape photos,” Chi-Tsung adds. The artist begins by applying a photosensitive coating to Xuan paper and then exposing it to sunlight to make these parts. The exposure transforms the piece into vivid blue color. The artist then takes several cyanotype papers and tweaks them before putting them on a canvas.
