Press Release

liu wei
recent paintings

Liu Wei's work (Beijing, 1994) has burst with remarkable impact - despite the artist's youth - in the international art scene. After the recent participation of Liu Wei in some of the most outstanding biennials, his paintings - dense braided fields of matter and color, in which the notion of space seems to go crazy - have seduced international criticism.

These paintings make up a countercurrent work with respect to the important pictorial production produced in China in the last quarter of the century (mostly figurative) and also with respect to the work of the Chinese artists of his generation (mostly video-artists).

On the few occasions when Liu Wei has spoken about his work, it has been to ensure that he does not understand painting as a means for the artist's expression, but conversely, the artist as a means - an instrument - for the expression of the material .
