Concept of artist Wu Yixuan’s creation revolves around the good times in life. Mineral pigments and metal leaf are used to create a unique visual vocabulary to interpret light and shadow and sense of seasons, presenting poetic and warm pictures, and conveying the artistic conception of perfection and hope.
Observing the natural landscape of Japan with distinct changes in four seasons, and influenced by the flatness and decoration of “Rimpa”, in 2018 , she began to develop the ” Between Light and Shadow ” series of works. After drying the flowers and plants in different seasons, the artist uses the oxidation of silver leaf to transform the shape of the plants into dark brown shadows, and then impasto with mineral pigments. The flowers and plants in the picture seem to be full of vitality under the sunshine. It has a special aerial perspective and sense of presence. Flowers and plants that would wither with time, their blooming posture is preserved through this skill, and the irreversible time is kept in the painting, just like through the camera, the memorable moment is transformed into eternity on the photo paper, conveying the good precious times in life. The state of floating and flying also contains the nature of art that is free, creative and has no standard answer. The existence of shadows makes people feel the sunshine in the painting, which is a kind of warm and peaceful companionship.
Being in a foreign country, facing the changes in time, space, and distance due to the epidemic, the artist has some feelings about freedom, movement, and the emotions and bonds between people. In 2020 , she began to create the ” View from the Sky ” series of works. When flying, the complex information and connections from the surface are cut off. In the stratosphere without rain and thunder, the sky, clouds, and landforms that are reflected in the eyes outside the window are changing all the time, full of infinite imagination. The state of soaring in the clouds is a wonderful time to leave daily life and find peace inside. Layers impasto of Gofun and mineral pigments are used to create a unique high-altitude pure, clear, bright color and level. It is hoped that through the non-daily vision, the viewer can evoke memories of travel, foreign places, and hometowns, and look forward to the next one. Taking a flight becomes the motivation in daily life.
In the 2023 ART SOLO Art Fair’s solo exhibition “Flying in the Light”, the artist will present two series of works ” Between Light and Shadow ” and ” Flying with the Light ” as the main publish, leading the viewers to travel through light, shadow and sky world, summoning the imagination and memories of the good times in the heart.
