On Oct. 14(Sunday), Triumph Art Space will launch an exhibition of works on paper and installations: L'écriture féminine which are co-presented by Peng Wei, Lei Miao, Zhou Qinshan and Xu Hualing. On paper, these four female artists who are of the same age eliminate the borders between tradition and modern, west and east, to express the aesthetics of L'écriture féminine, peculiar to woman artists.
Beginning in late 19th century, the female artists in the art world began to have influence of viewer, female artists utilize their body as artistic language in their expression, which fueled by feminism movement. Nowadays, in 21 century, female artists are no longer advocate themselves as minor society as creative theme, female artists in contemporary society has been transcended the gender issue to personal, day-to-day, as well as sensuous expression. Their artistic expressions are more delicate and various, it is their internal writing.
Among these participating artists, Pei Wei creates her works on a wide range with both east and west techniques. Western aesthetics can be found in her traditional paintings. From the Robes to the Painted Skin Series-Woman Body Installations, Peng Wei’s creations stepped into a wider space, from 2-dimensional to 3-dimensional. Until her new series, Taking off the Shell, she puts her paintings in the inner faces of silk shoes. In this exhibition, these three series will all be showed together with the debut of her video artworks. Zhou Qinshan uses merbromin to express unlimited conscious as if it can heal, comfort body and soul, it is metaphorical expression towards life and death, also a strong point of view toward life underneath its sweet color. Xu Hualing expresses young girls’ conscious and body, she use ink on multi-layered paper and silk, it is personal, delicate yet sentimental, we can receive messages through “female gaze”. Lei Miao’s Paintings are endowed with an atmosphere of mystery. Under her brush, she builds a world of her own artistic language which is silent and simple, mysterious and mellow. Although they are surrounded by noise and glitter in the contemporary art world, their artistic expression are unique- quiet and internal writing.
