Revisiting Kandinsky's "Spirit in Art", and his words "the pursuit of artistic faith and artistic experience turn into a personal mental journey"; these have always been cherished concepts, and interpret this joint exhibition of Zhong Jun and Liu Tao.
Mr. Zhong Jun and Mr. Liu Tao, two artists from different eras and different professions, work in their respective fields and seem to have no connection at all. At the same time, as lovers and practitioners of painting art, they have an art dialogue at XYZ Gallery. Through the expressions of their respective paintings, they can create their own answers to the paintings. The two understandings have their own reasons, and they are harmonious and identical. Their works are in awe of the magnificent scenery, concentrate on depicting measurable objects, and convey the delicate context of the painting.
Mr. Zhong Jun, with a background in electrical engineering, attempts to transcend his own external environment in his works, pursuing the inner experience of art and the unpredictable taste of art and regain the belief in creativity. Based on his personal interpretation, he separates objects, time, and space into one.
Liu Tao has studied painting since he was a child, and his works have gone from the expression of oil painting techniques to the freehand brushwork, which range from the stern to the rich and full of color. He can see the language of measurement and quantification, and tries to go beyond the manipulation and analysis of the picture, which appears broad and insensitive.
This is the first joint exhibition of the two in a strict sense. The works have an external similarity and an internal similarity to express their inner insights. In the end, the viewer is brought back to the pure vision, in which the work and reality reach a natural harmony.
