“I would like to serialise the surging fragmented information by an illusioned way, trying to interpret people’s tenderest emotional world when piecing through the artificial barrier. In the meantime, I hope to free the self-control spirit, enjoy and revive a flexible space for creation with a more open-minded attitude and various angles towards paintings.”
Zheng Wenxin graduated from Art College of Xiamen University with a Bachelor degree and a Master’s degree from Kent Institute of Art & Design in the U.K. (now renamed University for the Creative Arts, U.K.) Today she works in China Academy of Fine Arts (Hangzhou). She has had solo shows called “Silence” in Inna Art Space in Hangzhou (2013) and “Float Day and Night” in Hunsand Space in Beijing (2015).
In this exhibition, she develops her work from a microcosmic angle: From surrounding people, things and objects to discuss how the recognition of time and space is being changed in a cyber age; how the emotional communication between people and persons is being supressed. The scenes in the images look somehow familiar, but momentarily become extremely unfamiliar. Moreover, some parts of the people, things and objects are getting more and more conspicuous in superimposed process, while some are vanishing. When facing these images, we are not only outsiders but also insiders.
