Wu Tung-Lung

Taiwan

For years, Wu has worked on the manifestation of geometric and organic signs and symbols, adept at shaping the use of space and lines to pursue pure, simple, and abstract representation. His works carry both the calmness of classical paintings as well as the ingenuity of contemporary art.

He says of his residency in Dufftown, "the natural environment is one of the most important influences for me. Besides the scenic beauty of the hills, forests, rivers and the sky of Dufftown, I know that even finer details of the landscape in the surrounding area will strongly affect me and my painting too, such as the texture of the soil, the smell of the grass, the warmth of the sun and the calls of birds and insects."
