At first glance, Qiu Shihua's works appear as monochrome, almost completely white canvases. However, on closer inspection, expansive landscapes emerge from their painterly surfaces, which, depending on the way you look at them, gradually blossom with detail, or recede again from view. The artist creates his broad landscapes in monochrome colours, applied in a minimalist style. The mysterious depth of his painting results in his canvases having a captivating effect in the eye of the beholder.
The exhibition has been made possible by the Verein der Freunde der Nationalgalerie. The exhibition is being held in cooperation with the Museum Pfalzgalerie Kaiserslautern.
