This event has now passed.

Magician Space hosts a solo exhibition for Beijing-based painter and video artist Liang Wei. The show, her first solo painting show, collect works she's produced over the last five years. The curators add: 'Using oil, acrylic, and water based colors, Liang Wei has created a body of work that is varied in form, method, and content – but nonetheless retains a coherent and rigorous personal voice throughout. The wide variation of formal sensibilities between her works is a reflection of the extensive source of images that she uses as their starting points. Whereas Liang Wei’s previous work primarily used the accumulated detritus of contemporary society as their starting points, this has expanded in recent years to people, faces, landscapes, and old masters. These themes, however, are not explored for their meaning, but for their potential of transformation. Liang Wei tears images apart only to rearrange them into an utterly personal formal language. In the process one set of images dies, opening up the possibility for new images to emerge.'
