About the Work

Nie Jian Bing incorporates Chinese characters in the skilled close up recreation of the face of the goddess from Botticelli's 1486 painting The Birth of Venus. The portrait is overlaid with a grid and dotted with acupuncture points that correspond to “stomach 1” “bladder 1” and more in Chinese characters. The work is an intersection of East and West cultures as well as a visceral reminder of the physical subject of the painting who is no longer alive. Nie Jian Bing's work is held in private and corporate collections in North America, Europe and China.
