This exhibition seeks to give a subjective survey of young ink artists in China. Throughout two thousand years of history, ink painting has continually evolved and adapted on its own terms, with new modes of expression using the quintessential Chinese media of ink, brush and paper.Born after the 1970s, each of these young ink artists has made a conscientious decision to adopt and develop his or her unique artistic style within the realm of ink painting, assimilating both modern and archaic elements. Collectively, and yet individually, these selected young artists have each discovered ways of capturing the essence and spirit of the ink tradition while pushing the medium forward with his or her distinctive brush touch.
