Chen Jie’s canvas is divided into countless little square blocks and then refilled with colour one by one. What may sound like a very tedious work, as the artist tenaciously following his own set of rules, results in a pellucid work of abstraction bearing hints of the waves of the sea and the endless expanse of the heavens. Repetition, for the artist, is the first and foremost measure of the body in its journey to the other world. Classic abstract art in its post-modern development proceeds from the dot or the line, coloured or empty, in either instinctual expression or optical logic, along with this is Chen’s own experience. The classical, the historical, the cultural, the natural, a healed wound, the meditation of the spirit — abstraction becomes the Deleuzian rhizome; it no longer sprouts arboreally but spurts forth being transplanted from the criss-cross mesh of rhizomes.
