Shi Zhiying's paintings don't boast any exaggerated forms or magnificent skills. The artist's frivolous, ethereal brushstrokes allow nature to reveal the profundities concealed beneath life. She is concerned with the sea, grass, dunes, cosmic nebulae and other natural objects. By paving and stretching/elongating space, she reveals a scenic space that is both wide and profound in scope. She transforms the original feelings and experiences obtained through her own confrontations with the world from passive reception into active, mindful observation.
