Lot Details

"Olympic No. 4" (2007) by famed Chinese Contemporary artist Yi Ling (China, b. 1961) measures 39.37 x 31.5 inches (100 x 80 cm), is unframed and in excellent condition. Yi's paintings are characterized by the artistic equivalent of automatic writing, where primitive impulses and sexuality collide, and embrace popular culture and consumerism in a teeming dream-scape. "Olympic No. 4" is a vibrant example of Yi's manner of integrating the use of abstract symbols, words, figures, religious and pop-culture iconography, that are at times boldly outlined, at other times cryptic and seemingly hidden. These images work together to evoke an exciting and dynamic experience for the viewer, as elements begin to emerge as separate entities that ground the work and bring it to life.

Yi Ling's resume is impressive, his works having been exhibited widely across China, including his native Shanghai, and internationally from Singapore to Germany, Belgium, Holland, France, and Luxembourg. The artist has shown widely throughout Europe and Asia including notable Museum shows including "Course", Gefen Contemporary Art Museum, Shengzhen, China; "Xu . Shi Part II", Belgium Embassy, Beijing, China; "Shanghai Abstract Art", Mingyuan Art Centre, Shanghai, China; "Artists Yi Ling and Lin Chunyan Exhibition", Guangdong Art Museum, Guangdong, China.; "China and France Culture Exchange", Lille, France; "The Beads and Style of Drawing", Tokyo Art Projects, Beijing, China; "Peinture Contemporaine Chinoise", l'Espace Lhomond, Paris, France; and "MONDRIAAN IN CHINA" - Touring Exhibition, Beijing International Art Garden, Shanghai Library, Guangdong Art Museum, China
