Fu Site

Fu Site’s extraordinary paintings resemble an escape from reality into a dream realm of the imagination, a fantastically surreal hemisphere, and yet, nevertheless, they unconsciously touch on reality. Seeing them, one has the intense impression that the painter, who was born in Liaoning in 1984 and lives in Paris today, relinquishes the guidance of his hand to hallucinations that, out of paint, “lie into truth” (Louis Aragon) ambivalent transitional visions.

"Deprived of both a classification and being accessible through terms and definitions and unequivocal readability, they oscillate gently and with audacious lightness between figuration and the non-representational in such a way that we are unable to clearly fathom either. So much so that we involuntarily puzzle over whether anything at all is represented there, or whether what we think we can recognize is once again in the process of disintegrating, in order to quickly to become something else."

Emperor II, 2021, Acrylic on canvas, 130 x 97 cm

"The subtle way that Fu creates the interplay of shapes, as cheerful as they are colourful, and how he has them correspond with each other, demonstrates his proximity as a painter to film, and how he commits to a close liaison with the medium of the moving picture, by setting aspects of the image in motion and exploring the eternal process of their wondrous metamorphosis"

Fairy tale, 2020, Acrylic on canvas, 146 x 114 cm

"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."

Figure and horse, 2020, Acrylic on canvas, 19 x 24 cm

"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."

Mr. Sandman, 2021, Acrylic on canvas,146 x 114 cm

"Everything in these pictures, which let us associate human and non-human beings in an extraplanetary sphere of weightlessness and bring to life mysterious relations between half-named and unnameable objects, appears to be of equal validity. There are no hierarchies whatsoever. In front of us are shapes that are transparent as well as impenetrable, as if created out of glass, which seem to dance with each other, to mingle, interlock and merge, only to once again come undone."

The birds II, 2021, Acrylic on canvas,130 x 162 cm

"There, in front of us, a cloudlike, still amorphous shape mutates into the teeth of an animal, which could equally well be a running horse with a tail or a monster from a science fiction world, and a human arm, stretched towards the sky, protrudes out of a red shape that we perceive as a garment in such a way that we think we see before us a figure with a missing head. Other shapes have the appearance of a wing which reminds us of Icarus’ futile attempts at flight. And a “woman in black,” who keeps her right hand open, stands in an empty room that abstract shapes flutter through like birds."
