Nie Jian Bing
Fille Avec le Livre - classical baroque portrait, chinese characters, oil paint

2007

US$10,800

About

Nie Jian Bing incorporates Chinese characters in the skilled close up recreation of a 1545 painting "Portrait of a Girl with Book" by Agnolo Bronzino. Bing's oil portrait on canvas is overlaid with a grid and dotted with acupuncture points that correspond to “stomach 1” “governing vessel 1” and more identified with Chinese characters. The work is an intersection of Eastern and Western cultures as well as a visceral reminder of the physical subject of the painting who is no longer alive. Nie Jian Bing challenges our cultural ideas of East and West. In his work, Bing begins by recreating all or part of a well known painting by a master of western art history -- Velasquez, Rubens, Vermeer. Bing then superimposes an artist’s copy grid, acupuncture meridians and Chinese characters on the represented figure. Bing's paintings offer a twist on classic portraiture and art history. Trained in France, Nie Jian Bing divides his time between Montréal, Paris and China. His work is held in public and private collections in Canada and abroad.
