Re-born

“Re-born” invited two artists: Feng Xiaodong and Wu Xiaoshen, who I previously have cooperated. One has the abstractive works, and the other one has the realistic works. Through their cooperation, perhaps the exhibition can spew out more exciting content.
 
Feng Xiaodong, “Zen Lotus Notes”, Zen, Zen Buddhism, philosophy, art; Lotus, one of the water plant which oriental culture gives it the tragedy color. With the concept of Zen to draw the lotus, through his free strokes, Feng Xiaodong completes his insights on the lotus. Perhaps, every time he paints lotuses and every time he comprehends the Buddhism. No matter forms and compositions, Feng Xiaodong enjoys his every spiritual experience in his paintings. Rich color, full of get rid of the fetter of impulsivity and joy, Feng Xiaodong’s Zen Lotus gives unlimited reverie in infinite space. Just like Zen said “One world, one life.”
 
With a realistic style that reflects Wu Xiaoshen own attitude toward art, an attitude that puts the artist's feet firmly grounded in real life, his paintings reveal his own conviction and sentiment through a steadfast adherence to truth. It is no coincidence, therefore, that his works are imbued with profound meaning. In this exhibition, Wu Xiaoshen will exhibit his latest works in 2012. A new series of group characters: at the side of the road, a person, stem with neck, walking with a steadfast and eagerly pace, towards his direction; The other side of the road, an elder man’s eye sights have been attracted by this man, he may think the guy is more interesting than his monkey; Gossiping village women and Brother Lee suddenly looking back…All these works look seemingly unrelated. And Wu Xiaoshen has no intention to interpretations. His painting has distinct characteristics of its own. A keenly perceptive artist, Wu Xiaoshen sets to portray in his paintings the relationship between personal perspectives and the reality in which man learns to survive. His painting method is reminiscent of the artist's own individual existence as his vantage point is closer to real life, his technique more plain, and his language more direct and unaffected.
