For the recent year, Liu Jiadong’s practice focuses on thinking about the ultimate questions of death, religion, time, and so on. He jumps off more from the existing art history frame and treats his paintings to be the results of spontaneous sensory responses. His sensory responses become the creative motivation which spreads and revolves. He reflects the fleeting situations through an uncensored, non-judgmental way onto the works. In his own words, “Painting is the comprehensive experiencing activity that people do when they are on the ground. It can also be an effort towards self-realization. Any motivation can produce a painting.”
Ou Ming’s most well-known feature is to use plaster as the main materials. For the seventeen years, as the practice deepens and the experience accumulates, Ou’s works become more and more “simple.” There are no complicated shapes. The viewers do not see any intentions; the creative subject becomes more and more transparent. “Aesch” is the recent work by Ou. When the work contacts with water, the vibrant colors on the surface disappear, and when the water slowly vaporizes, the colors come back onto the work. Obviously, the artist attempts to create a series of changing, growing entities. He puts the work always in changing and allows everyone to feel it. It is like flowers, grow, bloom, fall…
Zhang Yangbiao was born in Chengdu. Currently lives and works in Shanghai. He likes painting still-life, plays with film photography, and also paints in air-brushes. After moving from Chengdu to Shanghai, the change of his living pace and environment makes him rethink the existence of “human beings” themselves under the current fast-food information flow. His own pace is slower, precise, efficient, which is far away from his ideal life; his practice does not have a clear intention. Wants to play, wants to paint, then he paints.
作为西岸艺术与设计博览会的重要版块，已连续举办五年的xiàn chǎng单元持续关注当代艺术作品在特定语境中的含义与价值，并逐渐成为了博览会中一道独特的声音与风景。艺术家欧鸣的最新作品将在xiàn chǎng单元中展出。
As the important plate of West Bund Art & Design, the section with five years of history, xiàn chǎng continuously pays attention to the meanings and values of the contemporary artworks under certain context. It gradually becomes a unique sound and science of the exposition. Artist Ou Ming’s newest work will be presented in the xiàn chǎng section.
