Man Ding Wan

Drawing from inspiration from western and eastern abstraction, as well as philosophical texts, Man Ding Wan investigates mark making as a mediation of his own abstract sensibilities. Wan’s work rely on a continuous and repetitive process of creating layers of small marks collectively onto one surface. Repetition and action have always been important and central to Wan’s practice as well as having a restricted set of rules applied to its process. The density of the images alludes to the excess of which it’s made that in return resonates a particular condition upon it is viewed, to each it’s own sublime and reflection of the modern condition of art and painting.
