Catalogue Note

A representative of new gongbi (fine line) painters in China, Gao Qian is distinguished by her metaphorical juxtapositions of contemporary objects and scholarly themes.  The present diptych is part of her YouXian Ku series, inspired by the Tang novel about playful goddesses, where Gao illustrates states of flourishing and languishing. Orchids and butterflies, symbols of nobility and sexuality, are skilfully composed against a subtly painted background of negative space. She studied Chinese painting with the scholar-painter Jiang Hongwei at the elite Nanjing Art Institute and holds a doctoral degree in Fine Art from the China Academy of Arts.
