      About:
      Xie Qi (b. 1974, Chongqing) works and lives in Beijing. Xie Qi's recent series of oil paintings depicts the human figure, with a special focus on the areas below and above the clavicle. Her subjects are solitary forms illuminated by dramatic lighting, as if on a stage separated from their mundane identity as vessels for emotional expression.

      Xie Qi's recent solo shows include The Unbearable Weight of Things (Pékin Fine Arts, Hong Kong, 2016), Displacement (Dawan Foundation, Paris, 2016). Notable group shows include Sleeping with a Vengeance, Dreaming of a Life (IFP, Beijing, 2018), Extended Ground (Lucerne Gallery, Switzerland, 2017), A Separation (Beijing Gallery Yang, 2017), the Latch: That Obscure Object of Portraits (C+ Space Local, Beijing, 2017), Chinese Whispers (Kunsthalle, Bern, Switzerland, 2016), Dissensus Agitation-Paintings leading to language (Today Art Museum, Beijing, 2016). 

      Her works are in the collection of The Uli Sigg Contemporary Art Collection Foundation, Hong Kong M + Museum, DSL Collection, Porsche Collection Foundation and in the private collections of Huang Yu, Tan Yong, and many others.
