Full Description

This book contains two classic series, Chi Yi and Er Gong, which document the creative process of artist Chen Duxi over the past 13 years. Chi Yi is a way to merge the observer as a subject into the object of observation by means of movement, and to observe fluid changes as a way to study ontological painting from a subject-object perspective. The artist has long had a strong interest in and sensitivity to the texture and state of movement of subtle things. The works unify line and texture by reprocessing texture details in a highly distinctive personal style. Under the artist’s brush, the water patterns take different forms, and the flowing, coiling and settling movement states form a harmonious, subtle and introverted line aesthetic, and constitute the artist’s unique visual language and its visual spectrum. The Er Gong series is an interpretation of the microscopic world of plants and animals from a de-anthropocentric perspective, exploring the relationship between individual creatures and paintings.

Text in English and Chinese.

About the Author

Chen Duxi is an artist who has been devoted to the study of contemporary Chinese painting, trying to find some kind of deep dialog between traditional Chinese art and contemporary art, not just a grafting of formal language. In a cross-cultural context, he has absorbed the nourishment of early paintings from different races and has always kept the core of oriental interest in his paintings, which have been recognized by collectors from Europe and the United States. He has held numerous exhibitions at home and abroad, and his work has been featured in Art Net, Artsy, and many other internationally recognized media.
