Artists: Alain Urrutia, Bi Jianye, Liu Chao, Wang Shuo
EGG Gallery is pleased to present the joint exhibition An Eye Line from 13th of March to 30th of May, 2021. The exhibition is focusing on the recent exploration on painting from artist Alain Urrutia, Bi Jianye, Liu Chao, and Wang Suo.
“An Eye Line” has put our eyes on this type of paintings, whose power are solid and reatrained, situated between “classic” representational and “forward” abstract method of painting. They are searching and exploring up and down the time line, looking for a delicate mid-point.When viewers gaze at their work, they can sense the fantacy and reality entwined, the co-contraction of chaos and order, as a type of alienation from the reality.
The perspection of aesthetic of paintings started from the the short rest of the eye lines on them. When art today becomes more and more agressive formally and conceptually, painting is still keeping a restrained distance from viewers, functioning illusions that are half dream and half reality, with twisting bodies, restrained emotional expression, and cutted pieces of memory. The eperiences working on colour, brushwork, and composition has been tested accumulted for millenniums, and will keep providing us solutions for art when we look back to paintings, after more than half of a century of the age of “avant-garde”.
