The Essence of Art
Jimmy He Solo Exhibition
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.
