17.11.18 Liu Zhuoquan & Li Ning Exhibition

In keeping with the focus on Asian art presented during the 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9) at QAGOMA, Jan Murphy Gallery is exhibiting two Beijing based artists, Liu Zhuoquan and Li Ning.

Neighbours in one of Beijing’s many burgeoning ‘Art Districts’, the two artists share much more than studio space. Both Liu Zhuoquan and Li Ning are re-interpreting traditional Chinese art practices in a contemporary manner.

Whilst Liu Zhuoquan’s work references the traditional craft of ‘snuff bottle’ painting – painting on the inside of glass bottles, Li Ning adopts traditional ink paintings as his medium.
