Young and established artistic dynamic
The annual summer exhibition "In Between Days X" that recently kicked off at Art+ Shanghai Gallery features works from artists Ye Hongxing, Sun Bo and Huang Yulong, as well as three emerging artists – Kim Yoo-min, Hor Peixuan and Wang Baoliang – who are set to generate more dynamics for the gallery's collections.
Artist Ye continues pouring spirituality into her latest "Supernova and Eclosion" series by formulating meme stickers on canvas to create medleys of projecting imagery beyond physical reality.
Characterized by incredible instinct to express the power of nature, Sun's works delve into the realm of the intangible and transcendent.
Two mineral color works on canvas titled "Ji" (Ultimate) allude to Sun's quest to present "colors in his work as nature itself intended."
South Korean artist Kim's "Return" series deals with the intricacies of human emotions. Her latest work "Cheng Xian" (Art of Lines) sees her painstakingly paint and sculpt countless thin lines to mimic the ever-changing internal dynamics of the mind and heart.
The qiancengdi (multi-layer cloth sole) technique, a traditional Chinese shoemaking craft, inspired Wang to come up with the concept of rejuvenation in his sculpted creations "Remanufactured Object," which are made up of layers of old clothing.
The series of paintings "The Firefly meeting" are other inspirations of nature created by Hor, revealing her personal experiences with time, space and life itself.
