Tzu-Chi Yeh (born 1957 in Thailand) is a renowned painter whose works have been presented in various solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad. Particularly noteworthy are his infamous forest paintings which resonate a powerful beauty that is fascinating when you consider how the viewer would likely experience a very different sensation if he/she were to find themself in the same location that inspired the works. There is a deeply magnetic feeling coming from these paintings and from the very first glance you can’t help but be pulled into them — it’s almost as if your mind is telling you “Let’s get inside of there.” In reality, we so often find ourselves in natural locations very much like these, but fall prey to the relative subjectiveness of not being able to see the forest for all the trees. In these works, however, you get the best of both worlds.
