A Brush With Nature

Monday 1 July – Saturday 28 September

This exhibition features a collection of Chinese watercolours by artist, Rong-Gen Yin. Originally from Shanghai, Rong-Gen Yin began painting in the traditional Chinese manner in the 1970s. He moved to Northern Ireland in 2003 and has continued to paint and teach traditional Chinese painting techniques since then. Rong-Gen’s work embraces the two main techniques of Chinese painting – Gongbi, where intricate brushstrokes form detailed coloured landscapes, which can include narrative themes and Xieyi, which is much looser using bold brushstrokes and watercolour wash.
