Zhang Fan:Zhang Fan

Mar 23 - May 05, 2018


Ginkgo Space will present the first solo exhibition of artist Zhang Fan on March 23, 2018. The exhibition “Zhang Fan”will show the artist’s  representative works in recent years. It will continue until May 5th.



Zhang Fan was born in 1975 in Qingdao, Shandong Province. He received his Bachelor’s Degree (1998) and Master’s Degree(2002) from the Department of Printmaking in Central Academy of Fine Arts, China. Now he lives and works in Beijing. His new works “Improvisation” embody the idea that the gestures present in “writing” are reflected directly by thetraces of lines on the tableaux. Traces originating in the most primitive gestures of writing rapidly give the work a coordinated sense of rhythm, detail, texture and emotion. These elements instantaneously emerge in the process of “writing” and the artist’s task is to seize opportunities and make them inevitable – what we see in his paintings is the outcome.


This exhibition willalso showcase the artist’s past representative works. In his practice, Zhanghas always tried to make the solemn entirety and the slightest objective detailsas themes of painting. In his early works, he made a "solid" expression of the "imaginary" in Chinese traditional culture: repeated but distinct lines dissolve on the tableaux, undulating and profound, subtle in the Chinese way. His solo exhibitions were held in various organizations, such as the Today Art Museum, the Yuan Art Museum and the One Moon Art Gallery.
