Venue: Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
“Qin Feng in Venice – San Giorgio Maggiore” promotes cultural interaction and a greater understanding of our contemporary civilization through open dialogues. It aims to offer a glimpse of Qin Feng’s artistic achievements in cultural compatibility, so as to push forward the dialogues between the Eastern and Western cultures which were initiated in the exhibition titled “Waiting for Qin Feng” curated by Achille Bonito Oliva in San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice in 2016. The works on show include important creations of the artist - from the Desire Scenery series to the Fallen Angel series that were once showcased in Venice, which epitomize the pivotal stages of Qin Feng’s artistic career.
Qin’s paintings present emotional and explosive images that seamlessly blend ancient Chinese calligraphy with Western abstract expressionism. With best endeavors, Qin attempts to create a space for exchange between the Eastern cultural context and Western artistic expression, in the hope that viewers will be able to feel the same emotions he had when he first stepped across the boundary of civilization and entered a sacred realm.
As an artist and scholar that incorporate both Eastern and Western cultures, Qin Feng is a leading figure in revolutionizing traditional Chinese ink painting. His works go through and beyond the field of civilization; they merge the spirit of Chinese calligraphy and the romanticism in Western expressionism, giving rise to a unique artistic language and style.
