By Appointment

David Lewis presents an exhibition of paintings by Leah Ke Yi Zheng. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York and with the gallery.

Zheng was born and raised in Wuyishan, China where she apprenticed, from early childhood, in traditional Chinese landscape and figurative painting techniques. She trained subsequently at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Zheng’s practice offers a profound and exquisite duality: a contemporary Chinese painting method heavily inflected and admiring of the European (in particularly German) postwar avant-garde; or, conversely, a theorized post-conceptual painting practice incorporating and re-invigorating elements of traditional Chinese art (particularly its underpinning in abstraction), ranging from Shan Shui (山水)to Gongshui (供石).

Zheng has recently exhibited at The Arts Club of Chicago, Soccer Club Club and Caffé Centrale (Monte Castello di Vibio, Umbria)
