Born Chicago, Illinois, 1977. Lives and works in New York.
Eli Ping is invested in how objects function as phenomena, their forms documenting their own becoming. His Motes and Monocarp series and his canvas paintings encapsulate the approach by folding and unfolding, opening up a spatial dimension within solid matter.
His recent solo shows include 'Eli Ping' at Galerie Maria Bernheim, Zürich (2022), 'Eli Ping' at ANDNOW, Dallas (2022), 'BONE' at Ramiken Crucible, New York (2021), 'Eli Ping, Motes and Monocarps' at Ramiken Crucible, New York (2020) and 'Eli Ping' at ANDNOW, Dallas (2020).
