Lot description
"Untitled (山水, shanshui/landscape)" (1997) is a stunning and rare example of the Series of Calligraphy based works on canvas by important Chinese Contemporary artist Xue Song that conflates Contemporary methods of collage with traditional ink painting to create a new visual language. This painting measures 19.69 x 15.75 inches (50 x 40 cm) and comes framed in excellent condition. Here, Chinese characters that translate to "mountain and water" are boldly painted with dark ash upon a gold surface to create a visually dynamic and meditative composition. Heavily influence by artists from the Western canon including Jasper Johns, Mondrian, Franz Kline, and Picasso, he also found inspiration in the work of legendary artists including Xu Beihong, Zhang Daqian, and Qi Baishi.

Xue Song was born in Anhui province of China in 1965 and graduated from Shanghai Drama Academy, China. The artist has exhibited at the Shanghai Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai, and several galleries throughout China, US and Europe. The artists currently lives and works in Shanghai.
