Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The static trance of the artist peaceful expression, painted in grey with closed eyes and often blurred is starkly contrasted with the bright colors of the floral designs. The dramatic and the dull are fused to express an artist’s reflection on the adaptation and change within China’s social system.
Ye Hongxing uses her own face in a meditative state, borrowing from the Buddhism idea of oneness or “wo shi zhongsheng, zhongsheng shi wo” to represent all of humanity. The dilemma in her work becomes how to maintain cultural characteristics and natural landscapes visible in a developing society , without living in the past. Furthermore, how does a person or nation progress without selling out their environment, beliefs and culture.

Artist Profile

Born: 1972

Hometown: Guangxi Province

Based in: Beijing

Ye Hongxing (叶红杏) is a Beijing-based artist, born in 1972 in Guangxi Province, China. One of the most relevant and successful stars of the contemporary Chinese art scene, Ye Hongxing was previously selected as one of the top 20 contemporary Chinese artists by the curator of California’s Asia Art Museum and the director of Art Cologne. Working in oil paint, mixed media, sculpture, and installation, Ye’s works have been well-received internationally, especially her montaged sticker works that explode with animals, flora, and figures, or shape meditative Buddhist mandalas. Her works relish a sense of vivid, exquisite chaos, expressing a richness and luxury that combines bright hues with pop culture symbols and traditional motifs. Visually sublime scenes layer oppositions of tranquility and intricate frenzy, incorporating both realism and the visionary.

Ye Hongxing’s unique aesthetic has earned her popular acclaim worldwide. She has collaborated with designer Christian Louboutin and is widely collected by high-profile figures within China. Ye Hongxing has exhibited at galleries and museums throughout China, Europe, and the United States, and has been shown internationally at fairs including Art Cologne, Scope (Basel, New York), PULSE (New York), Art Asia (Miami), Art Stage Singapore, and the India Art Fair (New Delhi), where her installation was labeled one of the fair’s highlights. Notable recent exhibitions include 2014 solos The Fantasy Factory at Art+ Shanghai Gallery (Shanghai) and Ye Hongxing Solo Exhibition at the Lux Art Institute (San Diego, California), where Ye Hongxing completed a month-long artist residency.
