Backstroke, Breaststroke, Brushstroke: Paintings of Swimming Pools by Fan Yang Tsung

June 19, 2017

Having come across Fan Yang-Tsung's Swimming Pool series online a while back, we were excited to finally see one of his paintings in person at AKI Gallery in Taipei last week. Fan has continued to explore swimming pools, shifting his focus from portraits of swimmer's faces and skin to wider poolscapes. Flattened perspectives and hard angles capture the pool's reflections, lounging swimmers, and the vibrant tropical foliage that is found throughout Taiwan.
