DING YI 丁乙
2016
Acrylic on basswood panel with engravings
240(H)*240(W)*6cm
DY_7809

The presented painting, predominantly black with white crosses on basswood rhythmically disclosing the engravings, is named the title “Appearance of Crosses” with the date he painted. Ding Yi has been making abstract paintings using crosses and grids since the late 1980s. The cross, whether a “+” or an “X” with thematic variation, is a motif that the artist has declared is a formal mark without meaning, in order to emphasise the rational approach to painting, while the context of this work is the industrial-paced development of the urban environment in China.
