Product Description

Painted on an Embankment north of Hualien Taiwan, Fuerer’s Once Upon a time in the East is one of the finest examples of his work during the time he and his friend Mark Nilsson where Traveling around Taiwan Painting en Plein air. This simple, asymmetrical composition is balanced by the horizon line, the large boulders in the waves and the vertical cliff in the foreground. The entire scene is dominated by violet, gold, pink, and green light, creating a colorful feeling of optimism for a bright future.

The artist own words:

“Much like Van Gogh served as a missionary to coal miners in the Borinage district of Belgium when I first arrived in Taiwan in 1996 it was not to pick up a brush but to pick up a Bible to preach the good word of God as a missionary. My first assignment upon arrival was located on a strip of land between the Pacific Ocean and Taiwan’s Central Mountain Range called Hualien. To get there I had to take the long train ride South. To my extream delight, the coastal view I witnessed on the train ride that day was, breathtaking to say the least. I’m convinced this picturesque view is what cause the Portuguese to rightly named the island Formosa meaning beautiful island. This beauty has been one of the main reasons that I have made Taiwan my permanent home.”
