Ding Hui


In the ploughing series, the artist uses a utility knife to carry out dense horizontal and vertical cutting on the wooden board with multiple layers of different colors. Through the intervention of the farming method, the color of some internal layers is automatically turned over during the action to form a mosaic-like surface, and retains a dynamic force with blasting and irregular, thus breaking the two-dimensionality of painting. The uncertainty of the handwork left traces of farming on the painting, maintaining the non-mechanized language of the painting structure, and at the same time strengthening the spatial structure extended from the painting.

Ding Hui graduated from the Mural Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. He has had solo exhibitions in Beijing. His works are collected in the Art Museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts and the Yijia International Gallery. He has participated in several contemporary art exhibitions in China.
