Shimokitazawa Arts is pleased to present "See your breath" solo exhibition by Chu Liangwen.
Chu Liangwen was born Ningbo, Hangzhou, China, 1996. He graduated from MFA in Tokyo University of the Arts, Department of Painting, Japan. He gently expresses the relationship between himself and the environment and people, especially his mother with soft colors. He is up-and-coming young artist who is actively presenting his works at exhibitions while at university and after graduation.
He payed attention to water, air, temperature and light regarding this solo show and will show approx. 20 paintings, mainly new works.
We hope you'll enjoy Chu Liangwen solo exhibition "See your breath" like being wrapped by spring light softly.
I am interested in the relationship between environment and people, such as the relationship between me and mother, relationships with others in society, and relationships with nature.
I often come up with a person in my mind, who may be my mother, who may be important to me, or who may be another me, who I can't talk to.
When I paint, it seems that I can really establish contact with them, and feel her existence by establishing contact with myself.
I pay attentions to water, air, temperature and light.
Some things have no shape, but we can't live without them.
Lightly, transparent, seemingly nonexistent, but enveloping us.
I want to know why sometimes I will think my works are happier than me.
I found that I could breathe freely during painting.
Whether in the sea or in the sky or on the land.
I roam, I fly, I run.
I draw my breath in every breath.
At the same time, I hope you can see your breath when you come here.
Bring peace and happiness to everyone.
He gently expresses the relationship between himself and the environment and people, especially his mother with soft colors.
favorite artists : Wassily Kandinsky, Cy Twombly, Paul Klee, Frida Kahlo, Izumi Kato, Pius Fox, Hiroshi Sugito etc.
