KWM artcenter is pleased to present Chen Ying's first Beijing solo exhibition from 8.28 to 10.19 2019. The exhibition presents 8 new oil paintings. Chen Ying's most recent work further investigates his interest in abstraction offering an array of aesthetic possibilities for the audience.
The crash of figures, abstract scenes shaped through overlap and transformation, the blurring of lines between concrete and abstraction, along with the uniqueness of his aesthetics, left a deep impression on the audience when Chen Ying hosted his solo exhibition Reality & Regeneration in MadeIn Gallery in 2017. In the subsequent two years, Chen has continued to explore the relationship between figures, styles, perspectives, colours and materials.
Throughout the exhibited works, as well as diversion of perspectives and transference of vision, certain relationships which derive from, catalyse, entangle and are designed amid figurative construction, lines, materials and colours, are formed. Canvases are imbued with various shapes and lines, as a result of which, the structure and strength of his working process comes into being. The constant shifting of perspectives, combined with the clash, deformation, extrusion and deviation due to geometric figure's correlative induction and counteraction, delivers an elasticity and fluidity to the painting.
Diverse figures, styles, perspectives, colours and materials drawn by Chen Ying are partly designed, partly by accident. Shape, colour, dynamic relationships and structure interplay and evolve, organically and by chance, bringing about an energetic playfulness. At the same time, the artist mingles daily emotion and aesthetics into the works, without limitations and through deliberate implication, presenting abundant changes and movement composed through duplication, different frameworks, visual tussles and conflicts.
