Yang Gallery is delighted to present Zhong Dao Space artist Guo Chuanfeng “The Magpie Bridge Ink, Light & Shadow Exhibition” in Singapore.
This exhibition includes ink paintings, calligraphies, and a light show of dance drama, aiming to present Chinese Valentine’s Day to the whole world. “The Magpie Bridge” is one of China’s Four Great Folktales. The story is about the romance between a fairy Zhinü (the weaver girl) and a human Niulang (the cowherd). They meet at Green Lotus Pond and then fall in love with each other. However, the love between humans and fairies is forbidden, so the Queen Mother escorts Zhinü back to heaven and draws a Silver River(the Milky Way) to separate them. Meanwhile, magpies from all over the world are moved by them. Once a year, on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, a flock of magpies would form a bridge to reunite the lovers. That day is known as the Qixi Festival.
Sticking to the essence of traditional Chinese culture, artist Guo Chuanfeng is dedicated to promoting worldwide a new visual system and an Intelligent and artistic lifestyle. We welcome people from around the world to appreciate the beauty of Chinese culture.
