iPreciation presents a solo exhibition of Chinese painter Jin Jie’s recent paintings. Jin Jie 金捷 was born in 1965, in Jiangsu, China. He holds a doctorate from the Nanjing Art College, has exhibited extensively within China and is a member of the China Artists Association. The lyrical nature of Jin Jie’s abstract works is a testament of his mastery of the brush. Jin Jie employs inviting pastel colours to portray the urban landscape; as generous layers of oil are streaked at various points of the canvas to provide greater texture and thus an essence of character, effectively relaying the warmth and vivaciousness of a city. Despite the weighty societal changes occurring in China, the artist has allowed viewers to readopt a different perspective of his hometown, casting aside the stuffy, industrialised atmosphere that precedes economic development, and drawing attention to the presence of a tireless cultural code that binds a country with its people.
