THE MOON SERIE

 

盈虚 YING XU

  

 

"Reverie is the Moonlight of thought"- Jules Renard

 

Through my paintings, I like to play with the lacquer and eggshells details to express the differents phases of the lunar cycle. The satin finish and smooth touch of the lacquer revitalize the transparency and depth of the Moon.

 

At this time, I like to match my work with chineses fabrics such as ramie’s fabrics from Liuyang (province of Hunan) and hemp’s fabrics from Shaxi (province of Yunnan).  I realize draperies in the form of hangings for doors or walls decorated with gold leaves and eggshells. 

These materials are used as elements of “embroidery” and is carefully drawn on small fibers of fabrics. Shadow and Transparency then take shape. 

 

 



THE MAP OF CHINA SERIE

 

FRAGMENT#

 

 

Fragment is part of a whole.

 

Fascinated by maps and especially the different ways to read them depending on the graphic language used, it was evident to me, since I live in Beijing, to talk about China.

 

To conceive a lecture of this country, eggshell was for me the perfect material in order to work on details and accuracy and therefore accentuate the point of view that I want to share.

 

Eggshell is also one of the decorative elements commonly used with Chinese lacquer since the 3rd century; I like the idea of maintaining this craft heritage.

 

The various colors of eggs we can find in Chinese markets give me even more possibilities of visual expression.

 

 

Chinese territory then becomes a patchwork of eggshells; a precise fragmentation of the compact density of Chinese population.
