Richard Koh Fine Art (RKFA) is pleased to present Under the Horizon by Lao Tongli at Richard Koh Fine Art, 229 Jalan Maarof, Bukit Bandaraya, Bangsar, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 10 – 24 December 2016. Under the Horizon is Lao Tongli’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and in Malaysia. The opening reception will be held on the 10th of December (Saturday), from 5 – 8 pm.

Under the Horizon features 7 ink and mineral colour on silk pieces, painted in 2015 and 2016. The paintings depict delicate silhouettes and forms of lean swaying trees in an allover composition that are skilfully rendered in vibrant colours and in the style of traditional Chinese ink painting. The artist sees the similarities between the formations of trees with the growth of blood vessels, connecting the organic processes in our bodies to the living natural world outside. He states that the relationship between them and their symbolic meaning elucidates on the presence of life as well as his hope and aspirations towards the endless cycle of existence. He views the fusion of the intricate tendrils of the vegetation and blood vessels as creating a ‘field of life’, an optimistic view of how life constantly struggles, grows and develops while also referring to the current world view and the imbalanced relationship between the natural world and humanity.
