Defying gravity by pushing artistic boundaries

Zheng Chongbin blends Western abstract expressionism and China’s classical calligraphy culture

Zheng Chongbin explores the “boundary” between Western abstract expressionism and China’s classical calligraphy culture.

In his latest exhibition entitled Levity and Gravity, the Chinese artist blends bold brushstrokes with traditional Xuan paper. 

“My intention is to investigate the logic of the ink medium and its perceptual characteristics, the alternation between transcendence and the materiality of the work,” Zheng, who spends his time between Shanghai and San Francisco, said.

Zheng Chongbin’s Levity and Gravity runs at the Chambers Fine Art and Shin Gallery in New York until September 11.
