Han Bing uses abstract shapes, diverging from depictions of reality, in order to present interpretations of memory and of culture. The artist uses oil paint on canvas to create thicker, more physical depictions. She dwells on the idea of angels at different points, while also delving into her own ideas of texture as she depicts in her own unique way a scene at a construction site. 

Until March 10, Antenna Space, Rm.202, Blog.17, 50 Moganshan Lu, by Changhua Lu 50172, .
