作品描述:
Life changes have presaged important progressions in my creative practice. Each body of work, even those which may seem formally similar, are idiosyncratically unique statements. The Pendoring Paintings (2019-2022) are most reflective of where I come from. They use linear and spatial elements to reflect upon my personal life and my creative relationship, through linear and spatial dynamics, to art history, as the "pendoring" (pen-thorn) branches construct an organic lattice that recalls Abstract Expressionism yet protrude into the figurative marks left of memories. They are part and parcel of a search for a new visual language for my new chapter as a foreigner in China. The continuation of this search is expanded by multiple series of monotype prints. The Hualikan prints (2018-2019), created during my year in Beijing, which are more formally experimental as a means of expressing a coming-to-terms with living in urban China with its vastly different cultures, sub-cultures, norms and values; the Xingsha prints (2019-2020), created during my time in Changsha, are more concerned with venting reflections upon a changing personal life; and the Taoyuancun prints (2021-2022) turn outward again, encompassing the hustle of everyday city life, with specific reference to Shenzhen. Each of these monotype series, named after the subway stations closest to where I lived at the time, embodies the ambiguity of my experiences in a world where change is the norm, and yet matches them with a model for perceptual interpretation that is urgently emphatic.
