Hertz Landscape series 

Oil on canvas, 300x90cm, 2019

 In“Hertz Landscape” Chiehsen Chiu uses a chalk line reel, a tool commonly found in construction sites. Each line is an extension of the city horizontality and verticality, and the geometric unity of the picture acts as a unit to measure urban places. The panoramic format incorporate “time” to the viewing experience, tracing back to Chinese scrolls paintings heritage, as it it cannot be embraced in one look: it needs to be “unreel”
