原籍廈門鼓浪嶼的周廷旭早於1921年進入波士頓美術博物館美術學院學習繪畫,是第一位被聘為英國皇家藝術家協會(Royal Society of British Artists)會員的外國人,在上世紀的20年代至50年代活躍於歐美畫壇。鼓浪嶼中西結合的文化背景,以及周廷旭遍及世界的足跡,醞釀了周氏相信藝術是無國界的語言的觀點。周廷旭善於以敏銳的觸覺捕捉大自然明眉的風景,以及常常被忽視的景物。

It’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and we’re celebrating innovative painter and MacDowell Fellow Teng-Hiok Chiu (1903-1972), who received two residencies at MacDowell, in 1957 then 1958, working in Star then New Hampshire Studio. Born to a wealthy family in the Chinese city of Xiamen, Fujian Province, Chiu had the opportunity to study abroad in 1920, when his father sent him to study at Harvard. While there, he quickly discovered his interest in painting, and the following year enrolled in the nearby School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. His studies there inspired him to pursue a preciseness in his technique and the development of an aesthetic philosophy combining the perception of mind with morality. From Boston, he traveled to Europe, including Paris, eventually landing in England in 1924, enrolling at the Royal Academy of Arts, where he won numerous scholarships and competitions. When he graduated, he had the opportunity to satisfy his interest in Chinese art and worked with Laurence Binyon, curator of the Department of Asia at the British Museum. During this time, Chiu excelled at producing works that combined Chinese sensibilities and Western technique, and with a 1931 exhibition in Beijing, began exhibiting work around the globe. In 1938, he settled in New York, where his work earned a solo exhibition at the prestigious Knoedler Gallery in 1942. He befriended many of the city’s cultural elite, including some of the twentieth centuries most influential artists, such as 1972 MacDowell Medalist Georgia O’Keeffe, who admired his use of Western and Eastern elements in his oil paintings. Most recently, a posthumous show featuring his work was exhibited at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle in 2003.
