In Between

In Between

In Between is a solo exhibition by Dublin-based Jingze Du featuring new paintings, all of which function as self-portraits. They are largely grey with accents of black and white and each depicts heads in various configurations. Some are slightly contorted while others are more naturalistic. According to the artist, they represent an oscillating position that is in between various alternatives: strength and weakness; fast and slow; masculine and feminine; validation and rejection; external and internal; conformity and independence, and above all they represent his status as an immigrant, someone whose life has been neatly divided into two parts, the first half in China; the second half in Ireland.
