London, UK - Dedron: Nearest the Sun, the first exhibition ever devoted to the Tibetan female artist Dedron, will be staged by Rossi and Rossi in London W1, from Wednesday 6 May to Friday 12 June 2009. There will be some twelve recent works on view, offered for prices ranging from £1,500 to over £10,000. Dedron was born in Lhasa in 1976 and graduated from the Art department of Tibet University, Lhasa, in 1999. In 2001 her painting My Sisters won the Silver Prize at the Fifth China All Nationalities.

Dedron is a member artist of the China Minority Art Association and of the Gedun Choephel Artists’ Guild, both in Lhasa. She has participated in exhibitions in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Kathmandu, Singapore and Australia, and her work can be found in the notable Li Keran Foundation in China as well as in private collections in Britain, the United States, France and Germany.

Dedron’s work is based on the beauty of nature and the simple life in the miraculous land filled with silent historical monuments that is Tibet. Although her work is based on traditional Tibetan art, it is not a stylistic reproduction of that tradition; Dedron has created her own pictorial language that is simple yet mysterious. Her paintings incorporate modernist, cubist and even surrealist references; details of ornamentation, design and colour impact are essential characteristics of her style.

The title of this exhibition is taken from one of the paintings on view, We are nearest to the Sun, painted in 2009 in mineral pigments on canvas. Earlier this year, Dedron’s tenth year as a painter, she thought back on a decade of activity and discovered in her earlier works the passionate love she has for the Tibetan people and their unique culture. She looked out of her studio window into the courtyard where the peach trees were just coming into bloom and thought: “A new life cycle is beginning, another reincarnation. The time is now! Maybe those ten years have been a long rehearsal, preparing me for the next ten years. A new experiment, a new search, is about to begin.” She recalls: “I held my brush in my hand for a long time, and finally put it to the canvas. I wanted nothing more than to express my own thoughts and feelings. In doing this, I no longer needed to rely on concrete images. In the pure language of painting, I only wanted to express, as thoroughly as possible, joy, silence, misery, yearning, courage, evil…” This exhibition reveals the beginning of this remarkable artist’s second decade of work inspired by her love of her country and its people.

Rossi & Rossi, www.rossirossi.com, was founded in London in 1985 by Anna Maria Rossi who has been active in the field of Asian art for over 30 years. In 1988 she was joined by her son Fabio and together they have established a reputation as leading dealers in traditional Indian and Himalayan art as well as contemporary Asian art. Among their clients are such institutions as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Cleveland Museum of Art, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the Tokyo National Museum as well as the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, the White Rabbit Collection, Australia, and the Devi Foundation, India.
