Time Line: Innovative Abstract Art from China
Why We Recommend it
Curated by Tang Zehui, this exhibit features four of Mainland China’s most innovative abstract artists – Chi Qun, Gu Benchi, Jiang Weitao and Liu Wentao.
These four artists interpret the theme of “line” in varied ways of repetition, interweaving or layering to create a transcendental space of meditation.
Born in the 1970s and 80s, with rigorous academic training or self-teaching, they have all chosen the abstract as their individual art direction.
For these artists, the creation is rooted in the daily manual process of making the works, using their own being to have a constant dialogue with the object over an extended period of time.
