Introduction

The title of this exhibition hails from the stanza of a poem entitled “Let Wine Be Brought In!” written by Li He. The selected works for this exhibition are based on a series of illustrations published in Hoje Macau newspaper (a local Portuguese language newspaper) over a seven-year span, from 2012 to 2019, by artist Rui Rasquinho. Rui embarked on a long-term graphic commitment based on a weekly assignment to illustrate translated scholarly texts (poems, philosophies, critical essays, etc.) from several controversial Chinese literati, such as Li He, Wang Chong, Huainanzi and Wen Tzu. The illustrations and drawings reflect Rui’s artistic skills, in which he found realisation in pure abstraction recorded in Chinese Orihon style watercolour books.
