NEW YORK November 12, 2010—Tally Beck Contemporary will present an exhibition by Chinese artist Chen Ping.

The exhibition, entitled Confucius—Other Realities, is comprised of Chen Ping’s signature oil paintings in which he plays on the border of representation and abstraction. He conjures ancient Chinese poetry while commenting on China’s rapid development. His deft coloration and impasto lend profound depth and texture to the canvases while adding intense dramatic effect.

This is Chen Ping’s first solo exhibition in the United States. Based in Beijing and Hobart, Chen has achieved notoriety through a multitude of exhibitions in Asia and Oceania.
