Zheng Chongbin at the Chinese Cultural Center

Zheng Chongbin, Evaporation, 2011

This year the CCC’s XianRui (Fresharp) series at the Chinese Cultural Center features the work of abstract ink painter Zheng Chongbin.  The highly anticipated show is comprised of fifteen new and site-specific large scale pieces, which include both paintings and video projections.

Zheng’s work has been hailed as ‘unprecedented,’ and embodies the essence of traditional Chinese ink painting as well as the physicality of western abstract traditions. His work conveys both movement and serenity, making the experience of them at once timeless and dynamic.

White Ink is on view Tuesdays – Saturdays 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Sundays 12 – 4 p.m. at Chinese Culture Center, 750 Kearny St., 3rd Floor (inside the Hilton Hotel). Admission to the gallery is free.
