Wang Zhongjie 013-5, 2013 Oil on canvas 120 x 150 cm Wang Zhongjie uses the ritualistic act of painting to reveal a distinctive study of empty space and color. Revealing a philosophical sensibility, the pared down layers of paint evoke subtle nuances of light and a technique of distilling colors around the canvas edge is adopted as an exercise to imprint the personal state of the artist. Eluding stylistic formulas imparted by institutions, Wang Zhongjie paintings form an individually responsive enigmatic visual language framing his ongoing ruminations of the ‘essence of existence’.
