The Relics
 Shi Zhiying

James Cohan Gallery, 533 W26th St., NYC

Shi Zhiying’s first exhibition in the United States, well known in her native China for stark monochromatic paintings of uniform vistas — open water, Zen sand gardens, carpets of grass — that flood the viewer’s field of vision. Her fluent observational painting embodies, and promotes, intense reflections on individuality and the passage of time. “Some things haven’t changed, from the distant past all the way to the present and the future,” the artist states. “They are things which everyone possesses.” The Relics debuts large-scale oil paintings of decorative and religious relief carvings and intimate portraits of antique vessels.
