Ying Li: What's In Front of Me
Ying Li / Eve Aschheim: Recent Paintings is on view at the New York Studio School from June 6 - July 20, 2013, Opening reception: Thursday, June 6, 6-8 PM
In a new video, produced by John Thornton, Ying Li discusses her approach to painting:
"I want to paint as directly as I can. I want each painting to really be individual. Always I paint outside - I paint in the summer, I paint in the snow, rain… because I like the change of the weather… I'm not interested in describing the place but more I like to get a feel of what's in front of me, what kind of a mood… The texture out there is incredible. I want the painting to feel like it's dug out of the earth. They're not a polished thing, they're rough, like tree bark. Painting is really not still, painting is a live thing. "
