Book: Thai Tuan – Selected essays and recent paintings

Category: Artists, Individual

Price: US$35.00

Description: “When facing a white canvas the artist aims at going beyond the world contained in language. For a moment, at least, he forgets the name of things in order to walk into the world of pure form. His sole concern is to find ways to combine colours and forms under the guidance of some aesthetic impulse and to achieve a certain equilibrium. Thrown into the vortex of creation, the artist is no longer concerned with content or formalism.”
– Thai Tuan in an essay titled “Art Appreciation”
