The Flow of Li Xin’s work

Li Xin’s multiple personal experiences, the great river, his artistic training in Beijing, the years spent in France – these are so many of the factors that explain both the artist’s creative process and his work’s maturity.
His means of expression is essentially water, the elusive water pregnant with ink, and that calls for a receptacle of quality – the Xuan paper that is manufactured near Huangshan. More recently, he has chosen the Marin canvas woven in Normandy when he works with oil.The marriage of paper or canvas with the liquid element is revealed through the deep black of Jiangnan ink, or the indigo and dugrain-brun made by Sennelier, the Parisian supplier of the 20th century’s greatest masters.
Li Xin explores threepathways in this exhibition – the great polychromatic panels, the outre-gris and oils on canvas.
The large panels done on ancient sheets of papersometimes larger than 5 meters usually take the shape of traditional vertical scrolls or of articulated screens. Ink and color pigments diluted in water, and generate successive sets of lines that cut through the surface, creating a tridimensional space.
L’outre gris is a more austere, perhaps even more radical approach.After being crumpled, the paper is swept with a brush dipped in more or less diluted ink. An immersion into a liquid element is repeated until secret landscapes, barely visible, emerge, and entice the spectator to venture within. The formats are varied; square for the Earth, circle for the Heavens, a Great Book of Water with its many pages folded in pleats.
The canvasesreceive the oils that have been diluted in turpentine. The work is born from a juxtaposition of layers that sometimes create islets of matter in relief. It is these successive glazes that will give the painting its inner life. Acting as a mirror, the canvas traps the image. The humid element is still very much present, but contrarily to the work on paper done horizontally on the floor, the execution this time will be vertical – it is the successive flooding of turpentine that will fecundate the work and bring it to life. The formats evoke windows opened to the infinite.
