QIN FENG: Portraits and Desire
Ben Brown Fine Arts is honoured to present the first solo exhibition of artist Qin Feng at our Hong Kong gallery. The exhibition will include a selection of Qin’s iconic monumental contemporary ink paintings from his acclaimed Portraits of the Great and Desire Scenery series.
Qin Feng’s dynamic brush and ink paintings represent a sophisticated amalgamation of Eastern and Western artistic traditions, philosophy and representation. While Qin employs traditional Chinese materials in his work—brush, ink and paper—and paints in a calligraphic manner, his works are created with a physical vigour and scale evocative of Western Abstract Expressionist painters (it is interesting to note that many Abstract Expressionists were deeply interested in Eastern philosophy). Qin’s nomadic upbringing and lifestyle have informed the cultural fusions found in his work.
