From the CVA: Considered China’s most conservative brush technique, the gongbi method of painting combines fine lines with multiple layers of both ink-shadings and colors. The exhibition features the works of 9 contemporary Chinese artists from the Beijing Art Institute of Chinese Fine Arts Painting, who utilize the gongbi technique to create works that embody contemporary subject matter and themes.
The gongbi technique uses highly detailed brush strokes that delimits details very precisely and without independent or expressive variation. It is often highly colored and usually depicts figural or narrative subjects.
These 9 contemporary Chinese artists share the gongbi brush trasition and are leaders of a new fine line technique. They have transformed their paintings into unique personal statements, while exploring the social and political realities of China.
