The exhibition shows the process of adapting the ancient Chinese Painting Nymph of the Luo River. Nymph of the Luo River is a depiction of the famous prose-poem by Caozhi (AD 192—232). It talks about a doomed romance and describes a romantic encounter with the nymph, or goddess, of the Luo River in central China. 'Men and Gods must follow separate ways'. A Chinese artist named Gu Kaizhi adapted this poem into a long-scroll painting. Chunhui attempts to make the painting into a 3D digital animation, to achieve this goal, Chunhui conducted a number of tests. This exhibition includes 2D and 3D digital drawings, storyboard, and other media. Private view 6pm Friday 16th May Soft drink and snacks will be provided. Opening hours: 17 May, 12am - 6pm 18 May, 12am - 6pm Location: 5th Base Gallery, 23 Heneage St, London E1 5LJ
