New Works by Xiaoqing Ding

by Ken HarmanPosted on

Last week we gave you a preview of Tara McPherson’s most recent solo show in New York over at Jonathan LeVine Gallery.  Whereas McPherson’s latest body of work explores the influences of her recent travels to the Far East and the folklore she encountered, Xiaoqing Ding‘s latest, on view simultaneously at the same gallery, brings to light the experiences of a Chinese-born artist’s representation of the mystical folklore of her home. Born in Beijing and now located in Brooklyn, Ding’s traditional Chinese background and relocation presents a compelling counterbalance to McPherson’s work as Eastern legends and upbringing meet the technical influences of Renaissance and Western painting. View a few of our favorite works from the show below.
