Jimmy He – The Essence of Art

The Essence of Art
Jimmy He Solo Exhibition

Exhibition statement

Jimmy He paints abstract expressionistic landscape that reveal the inner beauty of the spiritual landscape of Tasmania. His recent paintings reveal a strong influence of style of Jackson Pollack and Willem de Kooning as he does not conform to the constraints of traditional Chinese pictorialism.

Jimmy’s oil paintings reveal a deeply sensuous communication with the landscape whilst signifying the fundamental significance of the environment to our survival and our future. Drawing on memories and language from a different tradition of place, he gives new understandings of Australian landscape as being fluid and spiritual, unfolding phenomenologically as thinking paintings that speak directly with the landscape.
