A complex assembly of shadows and reflections, human presences, images of interiors and natural landscapes, Fu Site’s pictorial language borrows the codes of the oneiric world, to give life to scenes that open the field of interpretation. By subtly combining fragmented images and overlapped narrative layers, Fu Site knows how to provoke a certain ambiguity on our perception of time, depriving the scene of any logical coherence.

Shen Han Kissing, 2022 oil and charcoal on canvas, Galerie PARIS-B Galerie Paris-Beijing
Shen Han, Kissing, 2022, Oil and charcoal on canvas, 150 x 170 cm

Shen Han attempts to pierce the relationship between paint and the body through a combination of pigment stains, supple gestural lines and allusive spaces. Seeming to crumble and dislocate in the image presented, the artist’s interest in the manipulation of fragmented spaces and the nuance between figuration and abstraction structures an invisible order into chaos. Piercing through the wispy patterns of colour, the oscillating gestures of Shen Han’s latest paintings are presented as gymnastically stretched human forms, generated by the artist’s own rhythm and physical movements in the creative process.

Bubble Game #53, 2023, Stone sculpture and blown glass, 118 x 40 x 40 cm

Often damaged with time, the sculptures are broken, fractured with limbs missing. Qi Zhuo got the idea to bring them back to life, to restore them in his own unique way: he’s going to use blown glass to fill the void, the lost fragment. Thus, a new life cycle is formed as the pre-existing artwork becomes another, evoking the bouddhist’s reincarnation cycle. The chemistry occuring between the shape of the age-old originnal stone sculpture with the contemporary and delicate aspect of the colored glass carrying the statuette leads us into the peculiar, the incongruous which are concepts dear to the artist, for whom humor and transgression are natural forms of communication.

Yang Yongliang, The Lakes, 2022. 4K video, 8'00''. Edition of 7. PARIS-B
Yang Yongliang, The Lakes, 2022, Single-channels 4K video, 7'00''

Inspired by shanshui, classical paintings of mountains and waters, the overall vision of Yang Yongliang’s work is reminiscent of landscapes. But a careful examination reveals complex superpositions of metal lattice towers, skyscrapers in ruins, electricity pylons and other man-made forms. While the ancients sought to convey the feeling of the immutability of nature through the stroke of the brush, Yang Yongliang endeavors to express in his digital landscapes this cycle of demolition and construction that is perpetuated before his eyes, and notoriously in Shanghai, his hometown. The result is a work in which the seductive appeal of urban modernity is simultaneously accompanied by an awareness of its fragility.
