Artist, Curator, Collector, Media professional



"The Untitled Series" is a profound exploration of her perceptions, emotions, and expressions concerning time, space, the Yin-Yang duality, and emptiness. This series is a manifestation of her practice in no-self and purposelessness. During her painting process, Ning Ning enjoys the harmonious relationship formed between her body, mind, soul, and the artistic mediums she engages with. The square patterns prevalent in her work are not just her painting language but also a significant part of her narrative, symbolizing her journey through writing and painting alike. These patterns hold manifold meanings for her, making the entire process a Zen practice.
