Fu Shuai - Space Labyrinths
Sept. 11. 2020 - Nov. 11. 2020
Linda Gallery is pleased to present works from Chinese emerging young artist Fu Shuai(born in 1985). Fu Shuai had studied art at Staatliche Akademie der kunste Karlsrihe in German for a period, and it makes him constantly constructing the graphic rationality, which is associated with the use of optical illusion to present a multidimensional variation in a contradiction space, and Fu had a lot of practices with the use of mixed media, which is associated with simulated texture.
Fu Shuai is adept at forging a space of “order” in his painting and discreetly placing puzzling “clues”, devising a compositional logic that beguiles its viewers whileuttering an impression of unfamiliarity.
As a young artist who was born in the late 80s, Fu Shuai grew up in an environment that has rapidly progressed after the reform and opening up policy, and this generation sees the world through the lens of digital technology. The virtual space of video games presents Fu Shuai with new visual and sensory experiences. Through déjà vu of the virtual world, his sensory perceptions are titillated into a false notion of reality, and there begins his new examination of spatial awareness in the realm of painting. Fu Shuai is adept at forging a space of “order” in his painting and discreetly placing puzzling “clues”, devising a compositional logic that beguiles its viewers whileuttering an impression of unfamiliarity.
In the paintings, a set of unique techniques are used to portray and recall the industrial metal textures, including the combination of inlayed real things such as shackles, steel wires and nuts, and many audiences would be attracted by the new trials and hope to confirm what they are by touching those; seen from the perspective of art history, Fu Shuai gives textures to those space labyrinths constructed in the graphics, and he has also gradually gotten rid of Escher’s classic form.
