As Xiong Wei’s mind wonders deeply into the realm of metaphysics, in either Chan (Zen) Buddhist teachings of Emptiness or Taoist Non-action, her landscapes transcend into total abstraction and brutal minimalism. All forms of traditional symbolism and linear representation is forgotten and left behind. There is only evidence of space and time, left by the artist’s brush. While the formal qualities of her so-called landscapes have dramatically changed, the spirit behind the image remains unaltered. Like Song Dynasty (960 – 1279) artists, Xiong Wei seeks to address philosophical concerns within the boundaries of her canvas, in which the painted image appears as enigmatic as that of the ancients before her, leaving only traces of her mind to be deciphered.
