Xie Zhengli's New Paintings
by J & Z Gallery
Location: J & Z Gallery
Artist(s): XIE Zhengli
Date: 2 Jul - 22 Aug 2010

J&Z Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of Xie Zhengli. Born in the 1980s, the Chengdu based young female artist Xie Zhengli is regarded as a pioneer in the new generation of Chinese contemporary oil painting. Her works have been winning extensive recognition for the recent several years. Opening from July 2nd to August 22nd 2010, the solo exhibition will include near 20 pieces from 2008 to 2010, featuring the new paintings on the nature and animals. Hence, a journey to the self exploration is about to start.

While most of her peers prefer the cartoonized, urbanized or visualized paintings, Xie Zhengli goes a way back to the simple and unaffected nature of oil painting. The texture of touches and colors has given an exquisite taste to her paintings. A keen observer in life, Xie Zhengli pours her enthusiasm and sensitivity into the various impressions of youth and growing-up. Thus, time is one of the essentials in all of her works.

The new ones, taken from the natural sceneries like the forests, elks, owls, are carefully constructed in vivid colors, heavy or light. The circle of life, invisible but stunning, will amaze the audience with the power of the nature. In addition, the unique method of repeatedly daubing and then scraping the paint helps to multiply the layers so that the intensity appeals.
