Powen Gallery is pleased to present Wu Hsichi’s online exhibition, featuring his new oil paintings. It will start from November 27th to December 13th.
After many of quenching, his unique style began to shine a vivid personality: thorough and exhausting study on mediums, glamourous and fashionable color setup, overwhelming line structures, rustic and innocent shaping games, a variety of view angles, uneven size of casual ratios, all combined together to construct a fantasy land that is out of the world and yet down to earth. It seems to be a weightless city in the sky, it is like an unknown realm but also like a familiar theme (especially the constant reappearing Guishan Island)? Unlike the “Silent Landscape” before, people and objects occupy a rather large area of space in the picture. They are part of the landscape’s composition, but also like outsiders jumped out from the scenery, are they human or god? Mushroom-shaped or spore-shaped plants, and animals such as birds bring us toward nature where is full of primal power. But window frames symbolizing car windows, architectures in a small manuscript, and flying machines all bring us back to a city where is full of technology.
