Ye Jian Qing – Reflections of the Mind


Exhibition Period: August 2010
Venue: NAMOC (National Art Museum Of China) Beijing, China

iPRECIATION is delighted to announce an inaugural solo exhibition of Ye Jian Qing’s recent oil paintings, titled ‘Reflections of the Mind’ at the prestigious National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) in Beijing; featuring 34 exclusive pieces from the Exploring the Bodhisattva series, created between 2009 and 2010. This exhibition is proudly organised by the Mural Painting Department of the China Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) and co-organised by iPRECIATION.

Born in Zhejiang Province, China in 1972, and currently residing in Beijing, Ye Jian Qing is a highly disciplined scholar artist who obtained his Master Degree and PhD from the prestigious China Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing. Ye is currently teaching in the Fresco Department at CAFA. Inspired by the traditions and history of China’s past, and relaying it through his own unique vision, Ye has received accolades from collectors and critics alike, as his distinctive, nostalgic style draws light upon his vision and desire, for the advancement of Chinese contemporary art.

The Exploring the Bodhisattva series is evident of Ye’s artistic maturity, and his unyielding search to integrate an ancient cultural ethos, into the realm of Contemporary artistry. The ‘Reflections of the Mind’ exhibition echoes the artist’s concern towards the development of the Chinese aesthetic, as he seeks to open a unique, though ancient-inspired path to express the collective memory of the Chinese people; and convey their sentiment of history through the eternal figure of the Bodhisattva, materialised through Ye’s gifted technique.

Each painting fuses an artistic interpretation of real life with Ye’s visualisation of the spiritual world; as he searches for a personal sacred abode, fulfilled through his exploration of this spiritual icon, and her role in the historical, cultural and aesthetical context. This exhibition of the Exploring the Bodhisattva series is a significant milestone in Ye’s career, and an apt showcase to be featured at NAMOC, one of China’s most revered cultural institutions.
