This event has ended.

Xie Caomin’s recent body of oil paintings is created by laboriously “interlacing” one image upon another creating multiple layers of color and texture. With this method, Xie achieves a subtle suggestion of movement. These paintings vibrate much like the flicker of a television screen — a reference he has noted to contemporary media. Within the process of continually painting over a painting, Xie explores the effects of using a deliberate and fixed media to imitate the transience and infinite multiplicity of the universe. With his recent “Thousand Buddha” works, Xie pushes this technique and aesthetic into the realm of pure meditative imagery.
