Xing Dong’s practice and poetics are totally unique;
his work mainly relies on the communicative powers of ink, which he uses as a
figurative means of transportation through the magical realms of space, time
and human existence. Over the years,
Xing Dong’s art has benefited from the many
multidisciplinary journeys the artist has taken, traveling through different
Asian and European countries. This resulted into works that, whereas they
maintain a strong and essential link with the culture of his native country,
also reveal a powerful, free, universal and highly expressive nature.
Xing Dong’s refined works unveil deep reflections on
life, human nature and the flowing of existence, which the artist explores in
its movement from the subjective to the collective dimension and back. Ink
blends together with the surface of the
canvas to create lyrical and surgical textures that stand out for their
one-of-a-kind, absolute style. His works are globes in which apparitions and
disappearances are made of light and air and prolific organisms; they are
fusions in which the negative and the positive generate renewed possibilities;
they are works that transform the rooms and environments in which they are
placed, prompting questions and suggesting comparisons.
The artist combines traditional Chinese ink
painting with Western painting; he studied both practices methodically, delving
deep into their fundamentals, variations, possibilities, failures,
amplifications and magical mistakes.
