In 2005 Chinese artist Qin Chong presented a trilogy of solo shows, of which GREY took place at Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art, BLACK at GDK Galerie der Kuenste, Berlin and WHITE at Art Beatus, Hong Kong.
In the article entitled Turning of opposites, Silvia Donzelli wrote, 'A kind of fight, a conflict between opposite tensions is shown in almost all the works of Qin Chong... In his paintings the artist brings to view this contrast through the reduction of the colour range to white and black only. White and black visualize in a clear and catching way the idea of the corruption process of pureness, which brings to mind the traditional image of spotted candour.'
The present catalogue includes artist biography and short texts by Andrew Maerkle, Lu Shengzhong, Selina Lai and Silvia Donzelli.
