Yanyan Huang: Cloud Tempo

November 4 - December 10, 2017 

Opening: November 4, 2017 4pm

A recurring force comes into existence in Yanyan Huang's painting. Within the world constructed by these gestural forces, superficial intellectual games appear awkward, absurd, and ineffective. From beginning to end, life is the vehicle that ignites thinking—not the reverse—which acts in a pas-de-deux with our reality. Intellectual anxiety turns into anxiety about the death of our existence and the existence of time itself. Through her repetitive and ever-altering process, Huang falls deep into immeasurable and placeless Time, to restore beauty and recover the poetics of life. Her work acts as evidence and maps to contemporality—they shape an unconscious view of time and become Time-itself.

About the Artist:

Born 1988 in Sichuan, China, Yanyan Huang is based between Beijing, New York, Los Angeles, and Florence. Deriving influence from a range of cultures and locales, her work maps out an complex array of geographies, identities, and relationships. Recent solo shows include “Nebbia del Tempo” at Ibid Gallery (Los Angeles, 2017), “Giardino del Tempo”at Tomorrow Gallery (New York, NY) and “Ex Silentio” at CURA’s Basement Roma (Rome, Italy), both in 2016.

黄彦彦:化烟云

2017.11.4 -2017.12.10

开幕:2017.11.4 4pm

黄彦彦的绘画中始终存在着不断变化的形象,而在由这些形象构建的世界中,肤浅的智力游戏显得笨拙、可笑、不再奏效,生活始终是触发思考的动机,而并非相反,这也回应了我们的现实:智力焦虑成为我们存在的致命焦虑。通过绘画,艺术家坠入时间之中,修复美的观念,恢复生活的诗学。在令人目眩的笔触和形象中,她塑造了浑然不觉的时间观,或者更确切的说是一种当代性,这在某种程度上消除了有关智力的焦虑,而让观者与她的绘画一同成为一种更为基本的、不加矫饰的存在。
