The Rebirth in the Spring Breeze: Art Exhibition of He Duoling showcases nearly 50 pieces and sets of sketches and oil paintings which cover various periods of He’s artistic pursuit, including his new works from 2019. From these exhibits, visitors will catch a glimpse of his artistic development and feel his vigorous and endless creativity.
This exhibition also showcases House with No Roof and Wild Garden, Woman and Wall, the large-scale paintings completed by He last year. He has a fondness for architecture; he contemplated and constructed the relation between the figures and the architectural environment in his Labyrinth Tower series, and he designed the He Duoling Museum by himself. He thinks highly of architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s “less-is-more” approach and has integrated the architectural philosophy into his artistic language: using subtractive techniques, he conveys the subtlety and fullness in the refined yet simple composition of his paintings.
When: November 6, 2020–March 21, 2021
Where: Macao Museum of Art, Avenida Xian Xing Hai, NAPE, Macau
How much: Free admission
