Galerie Perrotin Hong Kong presents the first solo exhibition of Chinese artist Dawei Dong, whose innovative ink painting is an inspiration for print and graphics, and colour. Arising from a new breed of avant-garde Chinese ink-paintings, Dong’s works are hand-painted by Marker pen and are viewed from the back. By strictly controlling the ink dots, he develops a system whereby a puddle of ink forms lines, and eventually webs weaved by a maximum of four colours. Colliding, restrictive but orderly, the pattern catches viewers’ eyes with its tempting sensibility.“Dust on Dust” is a series of his chalk paintings on wood and their own reflections in powder on the ground. The falling pastel colours are a piece of art on their own, becoming yet another of Dong’s experiments using one “singular” element to achieve two goals. – Maria Mao Cui
