The works of the artists Dai Mouyu, Sun Yu and Yang Yongliang mostly utilize black and white or a single color. When watching their works from a distance there appears a serene surface but at a close distance, you will find abundant dramatic emotions and self-examination under the peaceful surface a feeling which is very similar to enjoying a wonderful silent picture.

A long time photographic career makes Dai Mouyu(B.1975 Guangdong) a keen observer of his subjects. His works focus on the balance between the nature and desire to pursue the eternal existent rule of the objective world, which arouses a series of questions concerning the meaning of life, environment and the world. Either the pencil works, ink works or his photography, all depict the intrinsic power hidden in which is represented as “To explore in silence, or to die in it”.

Sun Yu(B.1982 Jilin) graduated from the GuangZhou Academy of Fine Arts and now works and lives in Beijing. The rich experiences of encountering both culture of the South and the North endow Sun Yu’s oil paintings with a rough feature but a delicate technique. “Solitude” appears almost unintentionally in the expressions and behavior of the characters he depicts. Someone looks up into the sky alone, and the other looks ahead sadly, even some walk along the road naked, all implies life is no more than a lonely drama with desolate essence in it.

Yang Yongliang (B.1980 Shanghai) has become an established young artist among his peers. His works are combined with the Chinese traditional conception of Shan Shui (Mountains and Rivers) and latest digital technology, which elaborates the indelible destruction toward the cities and environment caused by the over developed modernization. Under the cover of the Chinese traditional Shan Shui’s peace and beauty, does the illusion harmony of the cancer-like-spreading urbanization query the life values to ourselves?  FQ is proud to show some of his earlier works which are rarely been exhibited from it’s own private collection.

戴牟雨、孙宇、杨泳梁(名字以字母排序)的作品都以黑白或单色调构成,细看他们的作品,褪去外在的平和气息,细节处处隐藏着剧烈且丰富的情感与反思,好似正在欣赏一部无声胜有声的默片。

多年摄影记者的身份,让戴牟雨(1975广东)拥有了比常人更加敏锐的观察力。他的作品强调人与自然间的平衡,意在寻找客观世界中永恒存在的规律,并由此引发对人生、自然、世界等一系列问题的思考。在他的作品中,蕴藏着一种不在沉默中爆发,便在沉默中死去的力量。无论是素描、线描,还是摄影作品,无一例外地体现了这种张力。

孙宇(1982吉林),毕业于广州美术学院,现工作生活于北京。南北两地的求学与生活经历,赋予他的油画作品粗犷不羁的特点却又不乏细腻的笔触。他描绘的人物不管是独自仰望天空,还是黯然窥望前方,或者赤身行走于公路,“孤独感”在他们不经意的神情与动作间流露。作品暗喻了人生不过是一出各自上演的默剧,人性中苍凉的本质不言而喻。

杨泳梁(1980上海)在短短几年里,已经成长为新生代里成熟的年轻艺术家。他的作品将中国传统山水意境与当代数码技术微妙结合,阐述了过度发展的现代化进程给城市以及人类的生存环境以及精神层面带来的不可磨灭的破坏。在中国传统山水意境的遮盖下隐藏着癌细胞般扩散的城市景象,和谐与狰狞的对比是否质疑我们每个人的生活状态及价值观呢?这一次,非青计划将展出一些画廊收藏的早期作品,这些作品少被展览,是非常难得的交流机会与回顾。
