Wang Zhibo, ‘Mead's Dilemma 米德的困惑’, 2015, Edouard Malingue Gallery

About Wang Zhibo

Tropical sceneries finely coated by a delicate layer of dewy snow; glass cabinets housing an array of anthropological items; the blurred vision of a seated mother and child; each are running explorations in Wang Zhibo’s practice that surveys the absurd spectrum of what is real - geographically, historically, ethnographically, architecturally.

A graduate from the China Academy of Art Oil Painting Department, Wang creates oil on canvas paintings that confound our notions of time and space. Transcending traditionalism through the subject matter depicted, which is both curious and challenging, Wang channels her painting to represent the variances of our visual experiences similar to the reflection on the surface of water: capable of capturing the multiple manifolds of a subject.
