Ricard Chiang

Project “Islas del dibujo: trazos comunes”

His career over several decades includes participation in various collective exhibitions and international art fairs such as Arco, Art Fair Cologne (Germany) and Art Lisboa. He was awarded second prize of the VIII Fundación Barceló International Painting Competition (Palma, 1998) and first prize of the Autumn Exhibition of Plasencia of the Caja de Extremadura (2005); his work is represented in both public and private collections.
He lives and works in Mallorca. With work that unites two pictorial traditions of different origin (European and Chinese), Ricard Chiang builds bridges between what is real and what is imaginary.
His work shows the omnipresence of drawing and how the world is structured by lines and compositions in which light and shade blend to guide us. Working on paper with Indian ink, creating drawings with shadows projected on a surface permeable to light or taking his “tracing” instruments from nature (trunks, flowers, roots, cobwebs), the artist operates a process of revealing what is real, the simplicity of means of which that is so clear in the work chosen for Drawing Room is inversely proportional to his capacity for communication and emotion.
