Since the beginning of his career, Ding Yi has been preoccupied with the repetition of simple cross motifs, ‘x’ and ‘+’ which he uses to create vast aesthetic grids. Such physical repetition imbues Ding Yi’s work with a mantra-like, meditative quality. Not surprisingly, the artist cites the Chinese philosophy of Taoism as a source of inspiration, as well as the neon quality of Shanghai at night.
