Li Yuan-Chia: tell me what is not said is the first fully-illustrated monograph dedicated to the life and work of this extraordinary artist and reproduces works seen here for the first time.

An artist, curator, poet and archivist, Li Yuan-chia ranks among the most original and radical of post-war artists. Born in China, Li Yuan-chia studied art in Taiwan where he was considered one of the founding fathers of Chinese abstract painting in the 1950s. He arrived in London in the 1960s to exhibit at David Medalla’s and Paul Keeler’s Signals Gallery and later showed with Lisson Gallery. He spend most of his later life in Cumbria, establishing the LYC Museum in his own home and creating opportunities for over three hundred artists.

This publication includes two newly commissioned essays: Guy Brett contributes an account of the artist’s life and work, and Nick Sawyer introduces his selection of the artist’s poems. In addition, there is an illustrated documentary section on the LYC Museum, a detailed chronology and bibliography.

Published on the occasion of a major touring exhibition at Camden Arts Centre, London; Abbot Hall Art Gallery and Musuem, Kendal; and Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels.
