Pearl Lam Galleries Shanghai, Landscapes of the Heart-TheAbstract Art of Su Dong Ping

Pearl Lam Galleries Shanghai is pleased to present Landscapes of the Heart, Chinese abstract artist Su Dong Ping’s inaugural sol exhibition with the gallery.The exhibition will feature approximately twenty of the artist’s recent small-scale and large-scale paintings, composed of oil and mixed media on canvas, or acrylic on plastic board. Su’s action paintings, full of rich contradictions  and feelings, consist of thick impasto layered with raw images and a combination of compact and expansive brushwork.

Born in 1958 in Shenyang, where he continues to be based, Su’s works are informed by his formative years, which occurred by societal, educational, and even familial restrictions, Su has an urge to create art that is subversive and revolutionary. He employs the measure and spirituality of calligraphy, which emphasises a state of casual fortuity and instantaneity, in his abstract paintings.

Art critic Philip Dodd writes,[Su Dong Ping]produces emotionally charged paintings that are landscaped of the shifting contours of the heart, event more important in a world where only material objects are seen as valuable.
