Bio

Damien Ding’s current paintings are about the gaps in experience and the closeness of ideas typically seen as diametrically opposed and separate. Most immediately, these gaps and ideas manifest in experiences of devotion, fetish, and intimacy. He believes these particular situations give rise to the oxymoronic, illogical and surreptitious, elements that catalyze the generation of strong feelings. In these zoomed-in, sometimes quiet, experiences, the expansive, or transcendent, may reveal itself unexpectedly. Yet what is revealed can often only be felt, and remains difficult to enunciate in text.In that sense, his paintings are an endeavour to both describe the struggle felt in our attempts to articulate emotions and to possibly provide a source through which these emotions can be felt.

Damien Ding holds a BA in Art History with a minor in Asian Studies from Swarthmore College and is currently pursuing an MFA in Painting and Printmaking in the Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts. He has had a solo exhibition at List Gallery, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, and group exhibitions at Z/H Projects in Brooklyn and Fox Garden in Richmond Virginia. His work is currently featured in the online group exhibition Within Global Isolation: Asian Artists in America, curated by Chandler Allen and Hongzhen Han.
