Dusk is an exhibition of new works by China-based artist Tu Hongtao that occupy an expressive realm between figural landscapes and abstraction. Tu’s lyrical paintings are inspired by his itinerant journeying—in the mountainous regions of his hometown Chengdu and beyond—and draw on a deep personal knowledge of classical traditions of Chinese painting and poetry. Unveiling his most recent body of work, Dusk introduces 10 paintings whose sweeping compositions reflect the artist’s meditations on the rapidly modernizing world.
The exhibition at LGDR is Tu Hongtao’s first solo presentation in Paris, following his European debut at Lévy Gorvy London in 2020. New paintings by Tu will be concurrently on view in LGDR’s Frieze Seoul presentation, and work by the artist will feature in the gallery’s booth at Paris+ par Art Basel.
