With an eye to tradition, Chinese ink painters point the way forward.

NEW YORK – The Shuimo / Water Ink selling exhibition brings together fourteen artists who engage with the tradition of Chinese ink painting to explore the medium's potential for abstraction or to reinvigorate traditionalism in figurative works. Above, painter Qin Feng, one of the artists represented in the show, talks with Sotheby's Mee-Seen Loong at the exhibition’s opening. Shuimo is on view at Sotheby’s New York through 28 March.
