Eight Views of Taiwan first appeared in 1694 in the official Taiwan Chorography. In the four following centuries, the list of Eight Views has undergone a series of changes according to the times, due to not only the island’s development and social growth, but also the people’s choice of aesthetics and sense of cultural identification. What makes a scenery beautiful? A viewer’s opinion often oversteps the boundaries of objectivity. From 2013, three cross-strait artists, Lin (Apex) Pang-soong, Zhou Gang, and Xue Song, were invited for the Eight Views of Taiwan creation project. Without a preconceived list of Eight Views, the artists were invited to travel around Taiwan, and through their experience and interaction with the island, each represent the scenery in their own artistic language, ultimately painting a view into the cultural and historical heritage of Taiwan.

Three artist friends, Yang En-sheng, Lin Pang-soong, and Zhou Gang, with the generous sponsorship of collector Wayne Hsu, embarked on a documented journey across China’s Silk Road with Loftyart’s Richard MC Chang and Elaine Suyu Liu. From the ancient capital of Xi’an of Shaanxi Province, the journey crossed the Gobi desert and passed the end of the Great Wall of China, to the final destination at Dunhuang of Gansu Province. Capturing the spirit of the Silk Road, the link between East and West, the paintings, sketches, and various mediums created along the way are wholly presented here at Loftyart Gallery.
