Chen Linggang

Chen Ling Gang was born in 1978 in Jilin Province, China. In 2000 Graduated from the Environmental Art Department, Jilin Forestry University. He currently lives and works in Beijing, China 

Chen Ling Gang named his two series of artworks “Heritage” and “Reading”. In his “heritage” series, Chinese ink characters combined with the rugged texture of folds in the rice paper leave a strong impression on viewers. Without a deeper understanding of its history, when traditional Chinese ink painting is completely deconstructed and then reconstructed in a combination of different forms, the significance of these artworks can only arouse our imagination through meaningless symbols. Only if we immerse ourselves in the context of Chinese culture can we directly experience the visual shock of this artistic composition and expression that compels us to question and meditate further on history. In Chen Linggang’s “Reading” series, ink fades away and only the combination of various papers is left. Reading these wordless works is the same as analyzing mysteries in history, which ultimately is the symbolic meaning. The process of reading opens a vast space for the viewer’s imagination. ----Excerpts from “History on the Paper” by Rong Jian
