Lot description
This ethereal portrait of an otherworldly beauty is a fantastic example of the figurative oil paintings by Chinese Contemporary artist Wang Zhijie, and belongs to the artist's famed "Little Girl Series" (2008). Here a nymph-like young woman with exaggerated facial features is depicted in the manner typical of Wang's best works, namely with large luminous blue eyes, a tiny nose, rose-bud mouth and porcelain skin, that all speak to her naiveté. She gazes outwards, as if unaware of the seductive pose she strikes, with legs apart and hands holding the nozzle of a gun. Dressed in military hat and suspendered pants without a shirt, she unabashedly looks directly at the viewer signaling action and motion as splatters of paint fly around her body, like the exploding debris. This painting measures 70.86 x 59.05 inches (180 x 150 cm), and is in excellent condition.

Emerging artist Wang Zhijie (China, B. 1972) has already received critical acclaim and has exhibited widely, with group and solo shows in Beijing, Hong Kong, London, New York, Dresden and Seoul amongst many others, with works sought after on both the primary and secondary markets. The artist lives and works in China.
