Chen Ruo Bing Biography

Chen Ruo Bing’s theme is the void. «In the emptiness of the image lies the source of its meaning.» serves him as a motto. That is, he deliberately does not give meaning to the picture, but he does not go so far as to present a blank canvas. On the contrary, his pictures turn into colored light spaces. He banishes the immaterial light, the seeming nothingness, in colors painted thinly on the rough canvas, which, on closer inspection, dematerialize again. They seem to become pure light once more.
