FQ Projects is very pleased to present Sun Yu’s new solo exhibition: Being Alone. Born in 1982, Sun Yu is a young artist FQ Projects has been developing and promoting for a long time, including several solo and group exhibitions. Being Alone is Sun Yu’s fifth solo exhibition in FQ Projects, another milestone on the way of his gradual development in art.

This solo exhibition shows Sun Yu’s new works in 2015, reflecting his introspection on himself. He has become “more comfortable with myself and are more able to go with the flow of my own changes”. He is more willing to let his thoughts and feelings pour out on the canvas by themselves, instead of giving the works meanings on purpose. The artist “achieved a broader state of mind” by being alone. He kept questioning the meaning of being, the relationship of the self and the others, and “how to make the independent self a reasonable being”. This “self-isolating” gesture of the artist and his introspection can be seen in works such as Being with myself, The Definition of Loneliness , Solitude, Have Thought About and The Mental Struggle Between Potato and Stone.

Specializing in portraits, Sun Yu depicts deep and delicate emotions of human beings with his unique style of brush strokes. “I want to express people’s ordinary feelings, which are also my own feelings.” Most of his works have a melancholy and profound quality. They are dark, yet there are always light coming through the darkness. In the works of the exhibition, we can hardly see the faces of the figures. They are either facing other directions or are blurred, yet making these works no less powerful. The objects and people in the paintings are set with absurd surroundings, together sending out heavy and complicated emotions.

Sun Yu, born in 1982 in Jilin and graduated from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 2009. Now he lives and works in Beijing. 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. FQ Projects has been cooperating with Sun Yu since 2009, held several exhibitions for him, taking his paintings to LA, Paris, London, Melbourne, Korea, Singapore and Shanghai Art Fairs . All were well received with excellent feedback and captured the attention in the art world.

非青计划即将在9月9日隆重推出青年艺术家孙宇2015年新作展——独。82年出生的孙宇是非青计划长期推广的青年艺术家,《独》是他在非青计划的第五次个展,是其在艺术道路上愈发成熟的又一里程碑。

此次个展展出的是孙宇2015年创作的作品,体现了他自审、自省的这一过程。孙宇在这一年里变得“比较从心,能顺其自然地把握自己的变化”。在创作中与其刻意去赋予画面含义,他更愿意让自己的状态自然地流露到画面上。艺术家通过独处得以“获得更广阔的心境”,他不断思考自我存在的意义、自我与他者的关系,以及“怎样让独立的自己成为合乎道理的存在”。这种“孤立自己”的姿态和孤独之中的反思,在《和自己》、《寂寞与孤独的定义》、《思想过》、《土豆与石头的思想斗争》等作品中都能有所体会。

专攻肖像画的孙宇以其独特的笔触描绘着人类深厚而细腻的情感,“我想表达人的平凡感受,也是自己的感受”。他的作品大多有着忧郁深邃的气息,同时黑暗之中又总是透着光明。在此次展出的作品中几乎看不到人物的面部,能看到的面孔也是模糊的。尽管如此却不减其力道,画面中的物和人处于颇为奇特的环境之中,共同传递出沉甸甸的复杂情绪。

孙宇,1982年生于吉林。09年毕业于广州美术学院油画系,现工作生活于北京。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。参加过多个美术馆群展。非青计划09年开始与孙宇紧密合作,曾为其举办多个个展,并带其画作到洛杉矶,巴黎,伦敦,墨尔本,韩国,新加坡和上海各知名博览会,均受到业界的广泛好评和关注。
