‘The most striking quality of his (Jiang Baolin) individual painting style is an extraordinary feeling for intervening space, charged with tension between voids and solids. He challenges the air with intense density of form, a seeming contradiction which in his case always means a perfect control of spatial effects in every part of the painting. He knows how to fill up the entire surface with brushstrokes and dots while still keeping a tremendous feeling of airiness, light and depth. This distinctive feature makes his art quite different from the work of others.’ – Prof. Lars Berglund. Artist’s biography included in this exhibition catalogue.
