born in an erudite household, jason chung tang yen’s childhood has been imbued with an abundant environment of art and culture from an early stage.

his creative path started in 2002 with a series of abstract watercolor on paper works and has continued his artistic practice ever since.

jason chung tang yen’s tableau mainly depicts thoughts, emotions, sentiments and ambiances that are undetectable by the naked eye.

for he believes that the rawest poignancy of colors requires no logic or language, which can be directly perceived to interpret the intended meaning and purposes.

his source of inspiration came from an eclectic range of music, philosophy, literature, religion, science, process of thinking and the connection of various elements.

in our short ephemeral life, the artist’s duty is to create a legacy that shall persevere till the end of time, as a reminder to beauty, its inevitable decay and the ultimate return to religion, something we hold true to ourselves.

in his artistic practice, thinking is the initial stage like all things.

before its information, it exists in the form of neurons.

reality is constituted by the foundation of the void, reality itself is nothingness, the void is the reality.

his reality is never realistic.

albert camus once said: ‘there is no love without despair of life’.

without imagination and abstraction, reality cannot exist.

his paintings are fragments of thoughts, on music, literature, philosophy, religion, culture, aesthetics, emotions and senses.
