Kiki Xuebing Wang Los Angeles, CA, USA

The paintings all begin as small drawings on paper, a practice that remains consistent in daily life. The combination of mark making and vibrant color selection develop tableaus that play between figuration and abstraction.The prevailing drive in painting is toward sincerity, which aims to pass on a notion of “have a nice day”. The desire of pleasant is part of the work. Seemingly obvious brushstrokes connote an offer of sincerity, just as the overall theme of “have a nice day” is on the surface a kind gesture but in fact reflects an insouciance.
