FQ Projects is very pleased to present Dai Mouyu and Lu Chi’s work: drawings on paper, and glass sculptures. In these two completely different mediums, the works commonly express the artists’ creative processes, which involve temperament and the endurance of physically strenuous experiences, as well as the perfect combination of controlled logic and innovation.

Looking at Dai Mouyu’s paper works, one can feel the beauty in the coexistence and balance of emotion and reason. In his exquisite style, the detailed lines and flowing forms gathered together release a steady, yet freely tense and relaxed, strength.  At the centre of the works is the conflict and unity within times of change, which really relates to the artist’s self. This is a part of Dai Mouyu’s constant attempt to expound and understand himself. The placid waves on the surface display the depth of his potential, ups and downs of the past trained him to not panic, and shaped his cautious and meticulous style of painting. His work is comprised of understanding the self as well as life; this is a process of conflict and conflict elimination, understanding and being understood.

Dai Mouyu’s work not only shows “beauty”, but also allows viewers to have a perspective on his creative attitude behind his drawings, and through this thorough consideration and understanding, these seemingly “delicate”works deliver a force, a belief.

Lu Chi is regarded as part of China’s first batch of glass sculptors, and over the past decade of studying and creating glass art herself, she has developed her own understanding and unique style of glass art. Connected and leaking, her unique style is meticulous and complex. The works themselves, whether referring to the shape or gloss colour, all have to go through a journey of repetitive steps to be created, to foster an appreciation for the smooth lines and bright colours of the artwork. The artwork’s colourful brilliance, irregular magnificence, reflects the artist’s elegance and prudence. In order to grasp a better understanding of these seemingly delicate, but actually thick and solid works, we visited Lu Chi’s studio, learned the process behind creating a series of glass sculptures, and learned that it demands more than just creativity; it is a strength and endurance challenge, especially for a female sculptor, and also requires a dedicated spirit. At the same time, the savvy and delicate nature of a woman gives the works a special control of colour and style. Her newest series 《Journey》was produced after she travelled around the world, bringing the experiences of her travels back to her studio, creating her own “travel scenery”.

Dai Mouyu was born in Guangdong province in 1975 and currently lives and works in Shanghai. His photography work has been exhibited in several major exhibitions: Lianzhou International Photography Festival, Guangzhou Photography Biannual, Taipei MoCA, Shanghai Duolun Art Museum, Shanghai Art Museum, etc. FQ Projects is pleased to display his new drawings.

Lu Chi is a pioneer and witness of the Chinese contemporary glass art movement. In 2003, she got the very first MFA degree in Glass Art in all of China, from Tsinghua University. In 2007, after she finished her extracurricular education in the United States, she set up the first personal glass studio and became the first professional glass artist in Mainland China. In 2008, Lu Chi built up the “LuChi” glass jewellery line.  In 2009, she built up a luxury brand of glass tableware named “LuChi” in Shanghai with the Shanghai Glass Company. As an international glass artist, her work can be found in collections all over the world. Lu Chi’s sculptures have been collected by the V&A Museum, the China Pavillion (EXPO), and so on.

非青计划很高兴推出戴牟雨和陆驰的作品:纸本绘画与玻璃雕塑。在这两种完全不同的媒介下,作品却共同陈述了艺术家创作过程中在精神和体力上所经历的耐力和考验,以及他们的非凡逻辑控制力与灵感的完美结合。

看戴牟雨的纸本作品,能感受到一种感性与理性并存与平衡的美。在他细腻的笔触下,那些一笔笔细密的线条和流动的画面聚集在一起释放出了一种沉稳而又张弛自如的力量。作品中表现出的在变化之中的冲突与交融,也正是艺术家对自己状态的对照。这是戴牟雨一直试图对自己进行阐述与理解的方向。表面的波澜不惊更能潜伏其中的深远,曾经的起落造就了他处事不惊的性格,也形成了他谨慎细致的画风。他的作品蕴含了对自我状态以及人生万物的理解,这是一个冲突与消除冲突,理解与被理解的过程。

戴牟雨的作品不单单是在展示一种“美”,也同时让观者将视角放在了他绘画的创作态度上, 再由此深入思考并体会在看似“娇弱”的作品下所传达的一股力量,一种信念。

陆驰作为中国第一批创作玻璃雕塑的艺术家,她在这近十年来对玻璃艺术的创作与研究中有了自己对于玻璃艺术的理解与创作的独特风格。通,漏,复杂细致是她已具有的独特风格。 作品本身无论是从形还是光泽色彩上都要经过一道道重复的步骤才能成型,才能让我们欣赏到这些线条流畅,色泽鲜亮的作品。其作品的流光溢彩,变幻瑰丽,体现了艺术家的细腻与含蓄。为了更进一步了解这看似脆弱却着实厚实的作品,造访陆驰的工作室时,了解到了创造一件玻璃雕塑作品的一系列过程的同时,也了解到了它所要求的已远远不只是创作,尤其作为女性雕塑家来说更是一种体力和耐力的挑战,以及敬业精神。同时女性的灵气与细腻的心思赋予给作品特有的灵气和色彩控制。她的最新系列《旅程》,是在她游历于世界各地之后,把旅行中的体验与气息带回自己的工作室,创作出她自己的“游历景点”。

戴牟雨1975年出生于广东,毕业于广州美院,现生活工作于上海。其摄影作品曾参加过数届连洲摄影节、广州摄影双年展、台北当代艺术馆、多伦当代艺术新锐展、上海美术馆“果冻时代”当代艺术巡回展等。此次展览是非青计划第5次给牟雨做展。

陆驰是中国现代玻璃艺术的先驱者与见证人。2003年,她在清华大学获得中国第一个玻璃专业的硕士学位。2007年,在结束了美国的进一步学习后,她在上海建立了中国大陆第一个个人玻璃艺术工作室,并成为中国大陆第一个职业玻璃艺术家。2008年,陆驰创建了“LuChi”玻璃首饰系列。2009年,她与上海国驰玻璃有限公司合作又发展出日用玻璃的奢侈品牌“LuChi”。作为国际玻璃艺术家,她的作品遍及世界各地,被英国维多利亚及阿尔伯特博物馆,中国世博国家馆等收藏。
