Yu Ji Drawing Plan

Yu Ji (b. 1965, Chengdu) was graduated from Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts, his works mainly focus on historical changes and social psychological behavior. He keeps on trying cross-media experiments. In recent years, he empowers the daily routines to bran-new historical metaphors and cultural contents with the interpretation of “shadow”. In his solo event “Yu Ji Drawing Plan”, he presents a series of paper works. These works were not created and considered as the traditional paintings, but as the traces of actions. They are more like the process of searching the metaphor of the images: once the high mountains and historical figures appear, while the former generated as images, the latter is no more than a symbol. Different but related, they enter Yu Ji’s sorrow over the history and the current social situation.
