Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

With her superb mastery of the “gongbi” painting technique, Jinwei challenges the traditional medium and genre with her refreshing compositions of flowers and butterflies, all exquisitely executed in the “ink, color, water and pigment boneless painting method”. Weaving poetry and elegance into her paintings, she portrays surreal microcosms of flowers and butterflies, some in surreal settings bathed in intense washes of saturated hues and mysterious light; while in others, in calm, lightly rendered settings featuring highly refined brushworks.

The integration of the meticulous intricate brushstrokes with layers of ink washes; the interplay between the opaque and the translucent; the combination of both the dry and the wet ink methods; are all part of Jinwei’s constant innovation of the “gongbi” ink painting technique developed over the years.

Cai Jinwei (b.1980, Guangzhou, China) is currently one of the most dynamic young contemporary Chinese ink artist in China practising the “gongbi” technique.

Her butterflies are akin to the interaction between people, displaying a sense of play and other emotions.

With a strong foundation in the traditional Chinese ink painting, Jinwei has developed a unique personal style. The integration the meticulous intricate brushstrokes with layers of ink washes; the interplay between the opaque and the translucent; the dry and the wet ink methods; are all part of Jinwei’s constant innovation of the ink painting technique developed over the years.

Jinwei’s works had been selected to be part of Sotheby’s exhibition of contemporary artist in 2013, titled “New Ink – An Exhibition of Ink Art by Post 1970 Artists from The Yiqingzhai Collection”.
