FQ Projects is pleased to present young artist Sun Jing’s first solo exhibition: Is It Me in This Life. The exhibition will show works of mixed media on rice paper, an exploration of Sun Jing in recent years. It will last until 9th July.

Sun Jing’s works feature random and spontaneous collage of paper materials. When she was in art college, she was already interested in exploring using various materials to bring different effects and experimental experiences. During this exploration, she became increasingly fond of the rich “sense of brokenness” created by multiple materials. This became her unique painting language—-“to reconstruct by collage”. The main elements in her works are ink wash and tea stains, plus multiple materials pasted layer by layer on various kinds of rice paper or tough silk. The broken pieces are either formed naturally or torn by hand.

Conforming to the nature instead of painstakingly changing it is one of the main thoughts of Tao. Sun Jing appreciates Tao’s spirits, which can be easily seen through the spontaneity in her works. She uses whatever materials at hand and creates works according to present moment. Her works stray between abstract and concrete images. The hills, stones and flowers are present and absent at the same time. The series The Echo of Guqin originates from the artist’s husband, who is a master of Guqin. Sun Jing often creates works with the company of her husband’s playing this ancient musical instrument. The scribbling characters on the paintings are random selected music scores of Guqin. In regards to the series of Leveling All Things, the artist quote Zhuangzi: ”So with the universe which is but a finger, but a horse.” All things in the universe seem to be independent, but are actually dependent on each other’ s existence. There seems to be all kinds of things, but they are all equal, without difference in value. This series mainly pictures horses, fish, stone and bamboo groves. They are standing on their own, while at the same time existing in the picture with equal size, which seems randomly made by the artist in composition. These patterns lie there with ease, integrated in the atmosphere.

Sun Jing was born in Haining, Zhejiang, in 1979. She now works and lives in Shanghai. She has participated in “Period of Clean & Calm: Confront Hullabaloo” Group Exhibition, ZendaiArt Museum, Shanghai and FINDART Festival.

 

非青计划荣幸推出青年艺术家孙晶首次个展:此生是我吗。展览将呈现的作品是孙晶近些年以多种综合材料对宣纸和绢的探索而创作出的综合纸本拼贴作品。该展览将持续到七月九日。

孙晶的作品以随性及即兴的茶墨纸本拼贴为特点。她早期学习绘画时,就开始不断探索通过不同的绘画材料和创作材质,给作品带来的不同效果和实验性体验;以至于慢慢迷恋并沉浸于综合材料效果下丰富多元的“破碎感”,从而形成了她自己独有的“以拼贴来重构”的宣纸绘画语言。画面中的层层叠加,是以水墨和茶渍为主色加以混合绘画颜料,在不同的宣纸、绢上用传统浆糊进行一层层的裱贴。而在叠加中的碎片或是在创作过程中自然形成,或是手撕而成。

顺应自然,不要过于刻意是道家主张的主要思想之一。欣赏道家思想的孙晶在创作手法上的随手捏来,一时兴起,在作品中随处可见。作品中的画面游离于具象和抽象之间,混沌初开,一山一石一花一物,若有似无,似是而非。《听琴图》系列的创作背景是源于艺术家的先生的古琴弹奏,生活在同一屋檐下的一对伴侣,一个弹曲,一个作画。孙晶经常在古琴的琴声背景中创作她的作品。因此作品中涂鸦式的文字是用了一首古曲《天风环佩》中的曲谱而随意挑选部分章节填入。《齐物》系列,艺术家对此作品系列的阐述引用了庄子的:“天地一指也,万物一马也。”所谓齐物,宇宙万物之间看似独立存在,实则彼此依存。看似各种显现,实则等量齐观,无大小高低之分。这个系列的绘画素材以马儿,鱼儿,石头,竹林为主,它们既是独立的,却又在构图中被看似无意地以均等“体积”存在于画面之中,一块块随意地分散于其环境之中融为了一体。

孙晶,1979年出生于浙江海宁,现工作生活于上海。往年曾参加的主要展览有上海证大艺术群个展第二回《清静纪:与喧嚣对峙》以及Findart 艺术节。
