Beyond the Image
超以像外 2020 QX Wang Recent Works

Oct.16-Nov.30, 2020
1110 2 Ave F2, New York, NY 10022

New York, NY - Stride Arts is pleased to present Beyond the Image featuring recent artwork by Chinese contemporary artist and philosopher QX Wang. This exhibition brings together QX Wang’s thirty-three paintings and fifty ceramics. 

QX Wang is a philosopher and a pioneer in the Chinese contemporary and modern art world. 


“Artists are the gateway to our future and they are agitators and disruptors” Kasseem “ Swizz Beatz” Dean, Art News, 2020 winter. 

QX. Wang is definitely one of them.  


For QX Wang, a native of Laizhou, Shandong, the beautiful Daze Mountain of his native land is his major source of inspiration. In tribute, he has adopted “Da Ze Ren” as his artistic name.


Mr. Wang started to practice Chinese calligraphy at a very young age.  He later received his master’s degree in art and Ph.D. in philosophy and English literature from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  A natural-born artist even though he only began to paint professionally at 52, his talents were discovered and recognized immediately in China, Taiwan, Japan, and the US. 


Mr. Wang uses long and heavy brushes to draw or write on Xuan paper, often employing a mixed medium of watercolor, acrylic, and oil paint. There is great emphasis on line of all varieties. Viewing his work from a distance, one can readily appreciate the element of Chinese calligraphy.

In his own words “painting is an extension of calligraphy, and calligraphy is the dance form between the pen and ink”. QX Wang’s brushstrokes pay attention to the sense of order, flow, and rhythm. They make you feel like he is writing a story with the music. 


For the last 25 years, he has participated in many solo and group art exhibitions worldwide. Many pieces of his art have been collected in art museums in China and Taiwan. His collectors include individuals and corporations from China, Japan, and the US.

The current show BEYOND THE IMAGE: 2020 QX WANG RECENT WORKS, presented by Stride Arts, provides the public with an unusual view of art. Free from the confinement by the image, the artist could be able to move freely around the image, treat it with wits and humor as what ancient scholars meant by “aloft beyond the image” and “forget the shape for the meaning”.
