Lot description
This stunning abstract acrylic on canvas painting is a most sublime rendition of the accomplished Chinese artist Ma Sibo. (China, born 1974) Here, the artist continues his melancholy exploration of human inner sensations of solitude, loneliness, and abandonment in this serene dreamlike depiction of daily life, which has brought this artist into international recognition. These existential issues, common experiences to all, are embodied through this luminescent interior with calming colors to emphasize the diffusion and direction of light. Ma Sibo’s otherworldly atmospheres explore the compelling desolate depths of the soul through minimalism and poetic expressionism, and provoke hazy sensations of an obscure transcendent realm. This work is unframed and in excellent condition.

Ma Sibo has had exhibitions throughout Europe and China, and currently lives and works in Beijing.
