Info

Liu Feng’s latest solo exhibition, ‘Stalker’, will open at the Karin Weber Gallery, Hong Kong, on June 7, 2017. Highlights of the show will be recent paintings and sculptural works.

Liu Feng’s new works show a world of prowlers and chance meetings. His pleasure at mingling the mundane and the dream in early works is no longer as prominent, fate is now an existence that is heavy, yet has to be viewed with a sense of lightness. The flashing appearance of evocative sceneries and objects (horizon, fields, rivers, horses, valleys, trees, fruits, flowers, confinements and flying fish) results in a changing montage of sceneries that entails a reversal of time and the essence of  fantasy in its wildest form. This is an extremely personal, visual, natural and poetic confluence, fusing the subjects and their thoughts in stills with their realities, memories and dreams.

Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), in his novel ‘The Gospel according to Mark (1970)’, says “generations of men, throughout recorded time, have always told and retold two stories — that of a lost ship which searches the Mediterranean seas for a dearly loved island, and that of a god who is crucified on Golgotha.”  The palace of minds built by the consciousness of numerous individuals  is one that cannot be penetrated by stalkers. Seeing the possibilities of its crumbling, Liu Feng cannot help but create a playful alternative to art. The result is a colourful and energetic ‘marketplace of life’, decorated with immortal poetry and fantastic philosophy.
