The Land of No Heroes: Tsering Nyandak's most recent paintings at Rossi & Rossi in London

LONDON.- The Land of No Heroes is Tsering Nyandak’s first solo show at Rossi & Rossi since 2008, and features the most recent paintings by the Lhasa-based artist. Nyandak's works are personal reflections on life in Lhasa and the changing political landscape of contemporary Tibet.

These poetic images are imbued with metaphor and ambiguities that present the complexities of life in contemporary Tibet. The paintings are scattered with subtle references to Tibetan culture, in the custom made and hand-carved wood frames, and in the use of traditional Tibetan motifs. The floral imagery can be interpreted as a metaphor for the recent self-immolations in Tibet; the Tibetan word for flower, me-tok, can be translated literally as “tip of a fire”.

The figures are depicted in desolate landscapes or against an expansive sky, and while presented as sad and alienated, a glimmer of hope remains: flowers sprout from bricks, balloons and umbrellas float unrestricted through the sky.

Fellow artist Tenzing Rigdol has said: “I have often thought of Tsering Nyandak’s work as a reside of his superbly poetic emotions – exploding within him against the mileau of chaotic silence… His artworks do not proselytize, nor do they argue about his limits in being a Tibetan in Tibet, he simply opens up his heart to us and says, ‘This is me and these are my feelings”

Tsering Nyandak was born in Lhasa in 1974. From 1985 to 1993 he lived and studied in Dharamsala in India. After returning to Tibet he studied art under Tsewang Tashi. Nyandak has participated in various exhibitions in China, Germany, Estonia, Hong Kong, Nepal UK and USA, and is a founding member of the Gedun Choephel Artists’s Guild.
