Catalogue Note

“Chu Teh-Chun paints a country whose existence is found only in his paintings, a country both imaginary and real at the same time, formed from sensations many times experienced in the course of his life, bound to his memories of China which in time has become the space in his memory… In fact Chu Teh-Chun sometimes finds his inspiration in ancient Chinese poems of which he is an avid reader and which, he says, provide him with an image” Pierre Cabane, Chu Teh-Chun, 2000, p. 8 and 20.
