The four artists, Wang Chuan, Yang Shu, Wang Jun and Bi Rongrong, mainly devote themselves to abstract paintings. They were born during 1950s to 1980s, and basically represent several generations of Chinese contemporary art. In the 1980s, when Bi Rongrong was born, Wang Chuan started to abandon his mature realistic paintings, and determinedly explore and practice abstact paintings. He had made great success during over thirty years’ art practice and has been written by various scholars of art history as a representative artist of Chinese contemporary abstact paintings. Yang Shu’s practice of abstract paintings also initiated in the middle-late 1980s, and participated in the China/ Avant-Garde of The National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) in 1989. Wang Jun and Bi Rongrong are the young generation of abstract artists. Wang Jun’s paintings are rational and dispassionate, while Bi Rongrong’s abstract paintings are emotional and impassioned and the latter often convert between the two-dimension plane and the three-dimension space so that it forms its own unique features. Through the exhibition of four artists’ artworks from 1980s to date, A Thousand Plateaus Art Space tries to exhibit several sections of the historical development of Chinese contemporary abstract paintings, and expects to give visitors new angles to think and research the Chinese contemporary abstract paintings.

At the same time, A Thousand Plateaus Art Space will also exhibit Chen Qiulin’s representative photography artworks and small-scale bronze sculptures for personal memories of growing up. The other editions of Chen Qiulin’s sculptures have been exhibited in 2015 Art Basel HK and successfully sold. Qi Lan and Zhai Liang are typical intellectual-type artists, for their paintings are all related to readings and history of art. Through episodic and selective readings, Qi Lan communicated with even demurred to those classical history cases and works to gain inspirations, thus to build his unique rhetorical language of painting. Zhai Liang is an young generation artist who attracts much attentions. In his artworks, what the most valuable are the enjoyment of literary readings and the thoughts provoked by it; he transformed the enjoyment and thought to highly individualized paintings.
