MadeIn Gallery - Booth A207
Lu Pingyuan, born in 1984 in Zhejiang province, China, lives and works in Shanghai. Lu Pingyuan‘s artworks involve a variety of media, including texts, installations, videos, paintings, and others. For a few years, Lu Pingyuan concentrated his practice on the writing of “stories” as a unique type of media for art creation. These short “stories” significantly broaden the artworks’ state of existence in the real world and extend the inherent spirit of art itself.
Shang Liang's paintings are sometimes extracted from cinematic scenes, producing echoes and reverberations outside of the flat space of the picture plane. Sometimes based on specific characters, beginning with "The Real Boy" series in 2012, her works are unlike traditional portraits, and her characters are instead more like symbols, patterns or codes, which split gradually from a singularity into pluralities and then return back to a singularity. In the artist's subtle work, these images reflect the artist's concepts of cell division, reproduction, division, and reassembly, revealing a powerful sense of intimacy. The exquisite brushstrokes and the use of monochromatic hues show the artist's extraordinary talent and skill.
