Yu Yue, Shi Jianguo - Joint Exhibition
Exhibition open 2 / 1 / 2018 - 23 / 1 / 2018
Yu has incessantly explored the diversity of painting on paper. The technique, of which, he employs is extreme complex. His latest series - "Dissociate", depicts abstract "wandering" bats against figurative backgrounds, is a metaphor for swift, disorder and contradictive state of mind.
Shi’s portrait painting is characterised by a unique blend of figuration; it is a reflection of China’s transition from post-war period to Modern period, in socio-cultural context; and how Westernisation had an influence on young generation’s mindset and life style.
