Beyond the Canvas: Li Xiaojing
by Pearl Lam Galleries
Location: Pearl Lam Galleries Shanghai
Date: 28 Jan - 18 Mar 2013

Li Xiaojing was born in Shandong province in 1981 and studied printmaking and oil painting at the Sichuan Academy of Fine Art. Li is representative of a new generation of Chinese artists, creating highly personal and meditative work in response to an increasingly urbanised and materialistic world. She produces fewer than ten paintings each year. The exhibition presents the most comprehensive selection of her works to date.

In contrast with the politically-charged and grand narrative works of the 1980s, Li's paintings are highly intimate and reflect the artis's internal thoughts and feelings. Her subtly ironic and absorbing paintings often employ monochromatic backgrounds, black, blue or brown lines and geometric and natural forms to explore the non-linear and chaotic nature of time and space. 

Encompassing universal themes - heaven, earth, humanity and natural forms - Li Xiaojing's quietly beautiful and diverse compositions are not restrained by the physical confines of the painting as she creates a relationship between what is portrayed and what lies outside the boundaries of the image. Li says, "In my paintings, various forms, blank space and what liew beyong the canvas are all enconpassed."
