Han Bing is a chinese artist born in 1986. Having lived in Shanghai, New York and Los Angeles, she distinguishes herself by her sensitive and disruptive visual language in paintings that deconstruct pictorial reality and give new dimensions. Her artistic practice is based on urban elements, including street scenes and architectural facades. Han Bing has participated in the 2023 Prize Reiffers Art Initiatives Group Show.
"Arts: Thaddaeus Ropac's high degree of expressive colour" by Philippe Dagen
— Le Monde, 2022
Most of these artists are young, born all over the world - South Africa, China, Vietnam or Malaysia - at the end of the 1970s or the beginning of the 1980s, and their works are part of a history that begins with action painting, according to Pollock, De Kooning and Mitchell, but also passes through Hantaï, Debré or Degottex. Older references could be put forward, such as those of Monet, Matisse and Kandinsky.
For different reasons, two artists stand out. One is Han Bing, born in China in 1986 and recently settled in Paris, whose works emerge from her perspective of city architecture, of its walls covered with posters, which she likes torn and faded like artists Raymond Hains and Jacques Villeglé before her. But she does not tear them down, preferring to seek in these encounters a visual dynamic made up of successive affirmations and erasures."
"Saturation Review" by Laurent Boudier
— Télérama, 2022
This autumn, Ropac is offering a tour of current abstract painting by bringing together artists who are sometimes little known and from different generations. We will discover experimental, gestural or lyrical works by Martha Jungwirth (born 1940 in Austria), Wook-Kyung Choi (1940-1985, Korea), Dona Nelson (born 1947 in the United States), in dialogue with those of younger artists: Han Bing (born 1986 in China, living in France), Mandy El-Sayegh (born 1985 in Malaysia, living in the UK), Rachel Jones (born 1991 in the UK), Megan Rooney (born 1985 in South Africa, living in the UK) and Thu-Van Tran (born 1979 in Vietnam, living in France). In praise of colour and saturation."
