CHEN JIN

The Saturated Palette
March 10 – March 30, 2017
Reception: Thursday, March 16, 2017 6-8 PM

The acrylic paintings of Chinese artist Chen Jin reflect the recent modernization and globalization of China within the framework of traditional Chinese arts. Referencing the elaborate decorative patterns found on Chinese ceramics, as well as Taihu rockery–complex, pitted, and variegated limestone rocks found near the Taihu Lake that are often used in Chinese garden design and for scholarly meditation–Jin comments on the complexity of Chinese culture, the introduction of technology, and the push-pull between harmony and conflict, custom and innovation. His work is filled with bold, bright colors, fantastical shapes, polka dots, and movement. Jin's unique style brings excitement of a bright new future held in check by a sense of the mysterious.

Jin graduated with a degree in painting in Beijing, and currently lives in Shanghai, where he works as a painter and designer. He says he believes art can transcend any cultural boundaries: “It will touch the bottom of the human commonality... and does not require language interpretation, the work itself can explain everything.”
