This is Ding Yi’s first solo exhibition in London. Continuing his ongoing investigation, Appearance of Crosses, this show will present seven never-before seen paintings. As one of today’s preeminent Chinese contemporary artists Ding Yi’s work employs a distinctive language of mark- making to examine the function of abstract painting both as a personal form of expression and meditation, as well as a channel through which to consider the rapid socio-political developments of 20th century China.
The seven paintings on show form part of a recently defined new body of work. The series is characterised by an intuitive development in the artist’s practice – the creation of a sensitive and reactive relationship between woodcut and painting. Borne out of Ding Yi’s rigorous investigation of materiality, this distinctive new technique allows the artist to imbue his paintings with an even greater sense of space, depth and time, as well as a heightened sensuousness and physicality.
