« Revolution in Tradition: China’s post-ink painting era » at Galerie Nathalie Obadia
More than just a form of artistic expression, ink art – and more specifically ink painting, sometimes known as “Chinese painting” (guohua) – is a major cultural player in constructing national identity. This millennia-old language, which has been constantly reinterpreted and developed throughout history, continues to represent the most distinctive trait in Chinese and Oriental art. Conetmporary artists who refer to this tradition no longer conform to the simple components of this kind of painting, which expands to cover modern-day media. “Ink”, as a mark of Chinese heritage, culture and spirit, remains firmly grounded.
