From May 9th until June 27th 2015 SHI FANG Fine Art will present an exhibition featuring ten Chinese artists. The exhibition “Die Farbe der Leere” or “The Color of Emptiness”, will run in concurrence with the China 8 exhibition, in which eight cities in the Rhein and Ruhr areas come together to showcase the best of contemporary Chinese art. SHI FANG’s exhibition will display the major works of ten artists and give viewers an introduction to modern Chinese abstract art.
The exhibition explores themes of emptiness and color, and how the two can combine or fight against each other to create harmonious or powerful images. Each of the artists featured have also explored themes in their own work, in their own unique ways. The manipulation of empty space is essential to the works of all of the artists, as well as the use of color to invoke emotion or pull the viewer in for further examination.
