Yun-Fei Ji: The Intimate Universe is currently on display at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY.
The show is the Beijing-born artist’s largest solo exhibition to date in the United States, featuring a selection of work from 2006 to the present, including new scrolls, sculptures, and drawings never before exhibited.
Taking on the thousand-year-old practice of Chinese scroll painting, Yun-Fei Ji employs ink on paper as his primary medium and landscape as his central subject. However, rather than adopting the idealism characteristic of traditional scroll painting, Ji’s work presents the gritty reality of life in China today.
Tracy Adler is the Director of The Wellin Museum and she joins us now.
