Wellington Gallery was established in 2014 as an exhibition space under Chu Yun Group . Mr. Pan Fang Chung , the president of the group and art lover, collected artworks and founded the Wellington Gallery with hopes of sharing beauty with the public. Mr. Pan hopes that Wellington Collection will not only serve the public as a display space but also promote his vision in social education on aesthetics and art. Mr. Pan’s wish gave birth to Wellington Gallery as a form of contributing to the society and providing city people with a space to calm the mind.
The collection currently comprises mostly of artwork by new and renowned Taiwanese artists, including Huang Kuang-Nan, Liu Kuo-Sung, Chu Teh-Chun, Zheng Leigh-Wen, Chang Yi-Hsiung, Wang Ren-Jye, Paco Uong, and Yang Chi-Hung. Many of the ink paintings are outstanding, such asthe intense colour contrast skilled use by Huang Kuang-Nan’s abstract artwork, combining oriental aesthetics with modern concepts. Liu Kuo-Sung’s combination of the sun and moon with mountains and rivers has a lingering charm that creates a dream-like radiance. While oil paintings outnumbered the rest, each painting has its unique characteristic. Zheng Leigh-Wen’s paintings are filled with thin lines. These lines are delicate yet powerful, capturing the essence of the nature. Wang Ren-Jye’s abstract style reads like poetry, while Paco Uong’s impressionistic style visualises each and every gleam of light in Taiwan’s nightscape. Yang Chi-Hung uses acrylic paint to create artworks that give a sense of time, space, and speed. We also have renowned artist Chang Yi-Hsiung, who’s known for series of clowns and Paris streetscapes from which reflect his extraordinary life experiences. Chu Teh-Chun’s lithograph artworks are also numerous, containing copious colours flowing freely like water. All of these artworks will be put on display at different times in the gallery. Hence, visitors will be able to appreciate different artworks with each visit.
In addition to regular permanent exhibitions, the gallery also invites outstanding artists for solo exhibitions. Furthermore, we organise seminars and other activities where we invite expert speakers from the arts and academic sectors. All events are free and receive enthusiastic responses from participants.
