Xiong Wei, S18101, 2018

As Los Angeles-based artist Xiong Wei’s mind wonders deeply into the realm of metaphysics, in either 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 the master paintings of the past.
