Edouard Malingue Gallery
The Armory Show 2013

Edouard Malingue Gallery is pleased to present ‘Standing Wave’, a solo exhibition by female contemporary Chinese painter Wang Zhibo (b. 1981). The show features a series of thirteen works that capture that moment of stillness when two waves of equal but opposite forces meet. Like an anthropologist, Wang observes life and explores the visual cacophony created by using Western styles to construct Chinese spaces. Devoid of human presence, they possess an illogical geography and prompt us to take a more minute view of China. A graduate from the China Academy of Art Oil Painting Department, Wang was awarded the Luo Zhongli Scholarship in 2008. Wang's work has been exhibited across China in the Chong Qing Art Museum, the Today Art Museum in Beijing and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei.
