Bird painting without bird
September 9 - October 15, 2011
For OPEN ART we will be showing works by Chinese painter Ji Dachun. China is in the midst of an economic and social sea of change. Amid the euphoria over the country’s unbridled economic ascent, frenzied modernization, and the simultaneous fear of losing identity, art is discovering new, individual paths to take.
For the exhibition in Munich, Ji Dachun has painted a series of landscapes with obvious references to the Shanshui tradition, classical Chinese landscape painting. Contrary to the West’s visual conventions of central perspective, a free space for the spirit and imagination is opened up here. Instead of using ink and brush on paper, he paints in a gestural impasto in acrylic on canvas. Amorphous and organic shapes unite with the representative to form a unique visual world.
