Sha Po Lang is Sun Yu’s 2nd solo exhibition at FQ Projects. The exhibited artworks retain his consistent style, with the spiritual concept of his works undoubtedly focusing on the freedom of expression of his own temperament. Delicate and skillful strokes,profound but not with a darkness in tone, shows us the mind-exploration with a startling visual feast.

Sha Po Lang refers to three words derived from Chinese astrology,each representing a different star capable of good or evil dependingon their position in the heavens. As demonstrated in the artworks,Sha Po Lang has character traits including: an unsettled life, the ups and downs of life, with a famous hero physique. The Wuxing series(meaning five elements) implies turmoil and change, of both beneficial and harmful substances, sometimes having only one step difference. Shen li (a Chinese novel) creates another prospect:perhaps the world is just an illusion, with the ideal and the reality always in opposing positions. To contain every phenomenon, it implicates contradictions, being tangled, and conflict. Why don’t we become as the observers for the ages – from the point of view of the individual and society to rethink, and to create a world that we can trust.

Sun Yu’s works are filled with a strong sense of chaos and mystery,hinting at the loneliness and alienation of the human heart. This loneliness across time and space is resonating with feelings of the people who are living in reinforced concrete jungles. Why don’t we return back to the quietness of the soul; to peep at “the gap between hell and paradise” and thus expect the arrival of a ray of sunlight.

Sun Yu was born in 1982 in Jilin and graduated from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 2009. His works were selected for the Oil Painting Exhibition of Contemporary College Students in China,Guangzhou Mumian Art Salon and the new forces of Lingnan Oil Painting Exhibition. In 2010, FQ Projects organized an exhibition with his works as part of a group show titled “Here, there, where”, as well as a solo exhibition “irrelevant” in 2011. Both exhibitions received good feedback and captured the attention from the Art World.

《杀破狼》是非青计划第二次为孙宇所举办的个展。此次的作品依旧延续了孙宇一贯的风格,作品的精神内核无疑集中在他本人性情表达的自由上。细腻娴熟的笔触,深沉却不显臃暗的色调,向我们展现出一场探究心灵,惊世骇俗的视觉盛宴。

“杀破狼”是紫薇斗数里的术语,当十四正曜中七杀,破军,贪狼三星在命宫三方四正会照时,就成了所谓的“杀破狼”格局。正如作品《杀破狼》中所展现的人物特质:一生漂泊,大起大落,却有着一举成名的英雄体质。而《五行》系列则暗示着一种动荡和变化,有益和有害的物质有时只是一线之差。《神离》则营造了另一种意境:或许世界只是一种假象,理想和现实总是处在对立的位置上。包容万象中隐含了矛盾,纠结,冲突。我们为何不作为时代的审视者,从个人和社会的角度去反思,去营造一个自己可以相信的世界。

孙宇作品中充斥着的浓重的混沌感和神秘感,暗示了人们内心深处的孤独和疏离。而这种跨越时间和空间的孤独感,正是现在生活在钢筋水泥丛林中的人们最能产生共鸣的感受。我们何不回到心灵的幽谭得以窥视“地狱与天堂的那道窄缝”,由此期待一术阳光的到来。

孙宇,1982年生,吉林人。09年毕业于广州美术学院油画系,作品曾入选中国当代大学生油画作品展,广州木棉艺术沙龙展及岭南新势力油画作品展等。2010年非青计划为其所举办的《这里,那里,哪里》双人展以及2011年的《无关》个人展受到了业界的广泛好评和关注。
