SING FOR TAIWAN

A CHARITY PROJECT FOR TAIWAN'S INDIGENOUS CHILDREN

TEA PAINTINGS

These paintings are related to tea or tea drinking.
In Taiwan and Japan, tea drinking is almost a ritual. A tranquil and esthetically arranged space is often required.

Being an enthusiastic tea drinker, Huang has over the years created paintings that can be hung in a tea house or tea drinking space at home. These are what he calls ‘tea paintings’.

TITLE: CHIAYI , SIZE: 60x150cm, Year: 2014
Full price: 5 000€, reduced price: 3 800€ for the event


Chiayi is where Alishan is located, and Alishan is where tea plantations can be found, Alishan is also where the indigenous Tsou tribe inhabit. Close to the Tropic of Cancer, the high mountains of Alishan are frequently shrouded in thick clouds. This creates a cool, moist climate which reduces the level of bitter chemical components (catechins) in tea leaves, while increasing levels of theanine and soluble nitrogen which makes the tea taste sweet.

The letters at the right of the painting read: N23,5. The Tropic of Cancer is a parallel of latitude, 23,5 degrees north of the equator. In the middle of the painting, a traditional tea cup can be seen. Underneath the tea cup, are the letters “C H I A Y I “ .
