Current Exhibitions

Shi Zhiying
exhibition through February 25, 2018

In her first solo U.S. museum exhibition, Shanghai-based Shi Zhiying demonstrates the influences that Buddhism and the natural world have on her approach to painting. She is highly regarded in her native China for stark monochromatic paintings of uniform vistas — open water, Zen sand gardens, facades of weathered ancient structures. This exhibition continues OCMA’s commitment to presenting the freshest voices from the Pacific Rim.


Shi Zhiying, 100 Buddhas, 2012

Shi Zhiying, Rock Carving of Thousand Buddhas, 2014-15.

Shi Zhiying, Ocean No. 3, 2014.
