Chou Chu-wang has a flair for producing works with a high degree of realism and has become widely known for a pointillist style blending exquisite realism with quirky recollections. The long-term resident of southern Taiwan dexterously captures changes in light and shadow as he turns his own personal feelings into a sort of visual memory whose technique approaches the realism of a photograph, warmly and sincerely rendering the scenes within those visual memories in a fashion the cuts straight to the heart.
On the canvas of 《Rainbow Stone》, a work named after the seven-colored rainbow spectrum, stones with various veined patterns are arranged on the wall at equal intervals. The stones look flat, each with distinctly different patterns. But if you take a close look on them, you'll see layers of paints piling up, bringing out the stone-like texture and relief-like raised area, giving each stone an independent posture of life.
