new paintings
Deng Xinli & Xie Yi

3 - 28 May 2018

OREXART is pleased to present the first New Zealand exhibition by these two artists from China.

Deng Xinli is the representative of a new breed of Chinese artists, whose artistic experience is rooted in tradition while reflecting their views towards the current age of mass culture and post-socialism as a dialogue between the past and the future. He uses an almost graphical and pictorial visual language to present a fantastical world encompassing Chinese mythologies and surreal imaginations.

Xie Yi (Shay) is inspired by traditional Chinese paintings as she paints the sparsely populated landscape background in her works. The central form in her work is the horse that in Chinese culture holds much meaning and history and is part of art, literature and mythology. Chinese mythology has it that the horse is one of nine sons of the dragon. It symbolises nobility, purity and energy.
