Powerful, expressive oil painting characterizes Ping’s large abstracted works where figurative motifs emerge from coloured fields. Referenced with lines, almost calligraphic in brevity, the figures float, dance and celebrate. There is energy and dynamism of red bulls, fires or the monster octopus grappling, drama of life and danger.
A celebrated artist, Ping brings together a Eastern and Western heritage, and has exhibited widely in New York, Venice, Milan, Hong Kong, and China. A new body of work that confirms his status as an outstanding Australian artist.
