15 – 20 Nov
Hailing from Shanghai’s M50 contemporary art district, artist Wang Run-Yue and curator He Fei-Yue transform the abstract language of the personal into abstract objects that are tangible.
Using a combination of acrylic paint and mixed media, Wang reconstructs familiar landscape scenes into something pertaining to his own artistic sensibility. Through conflicting colours and a highly textural aesthetic, audiences not only gain insight into the artist’s own changing emotional state during the creative process, but also a new and personal visual experience.
The dialogue between the Wang and He aims to disrupt the relationship between the public and the personal, the ‘person’ and the ‘object’. Here, artist and audience, audience and gallery, artist and gallery, all co-exist with another as part of the exhibition.
The exhibition opening night will be held on Monday 14th November at 6pm.
