Inspired by Zen, ancient Chinese philosophy and Western philosophy, Wei Xiong’s expansive oil paintings linger in spiritual and postmodern idioms with provocative power. Formerly a Fashion Designer based in Los Angeles, Xiong’s careful compositions dabble in the expressive language of visual poetry. Subtle beds of hazy shading give way to dynamic scribbles and crystalline watery slopes. Characterized by slithering ribbons of pigment intersecting atmospheric color fields and delicious void space, Xiong’s paintings on linen and canvas hold impressive psychological weight. At once densely cerebral and momentously abstract, through subtle color gradation, meandering lines and galloping clouds of shadow Wei Xiong’s paintings evidence a brilliant marriage of the artist’s worldly wisdom, metaphysical leanings and painterly expertise.
