YUI Gallery, 131 Eldridge St, New York, 10002

YUI Gallery is very pleased to present Dawei Wang solo exhibition—City Poetry,which chronicles the artist’s experience in the United States over the past few years with the exception of Square, a piece that preceded his arrival.

Wang’s artistic practice draws heavily on his observational tendencies.In earlier work, Wang depicted banal activities tied to daily life in Shanghai.Upon his arrival to the US, Wang suddenly found himself a foreigner and retreated into an introverted lifestyle as he grappled with feelings of alienation in a new environment.As an artist, he addresses the silence and isolation of contemporary urban life in the West.In this series of work, human figures are blurred and literally insecure in their occupation of physical space, reinforcing the tenuous quality of human existence.In terms of color, Wang employs multitudes of cool greys, blues, and greens in the background while utilizing hints of bright reds and oranges to suggest a false balance.This dramatic comparison of color represents Wang’s exploration of unity and the tension between falsehood and reality, action and stillness, the physical and waking world.

Through material experimentation, Wang similarly investigates another dichotomous tension.In this series, Wang incorporates elements from both Eastern and Western painting traditions, using bold acrylic paint to offset the ephemeral ink washes found in traditional Chinese painting.For instance, in Early Spring, the conflict between nature and modern life is captured through this contrast in media.In Two Securities, Wang employs collage techniques on security figures to dissolve the oppressive uniformed constraints on the body, imbibing a poetic sense of childishness in the overall picture.Technical experimentation and the artist’s playful spirit are intertwined.Through the distortion and “childish” reduction of individuals and environment into playful elements, Wang reconstructs urban life as dream like fragments of poetry.

Dawei Wang, born in1984 in Shanghai, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts at Shanghai Normal University in 2015. He has already participated in group exhibitions like the FQ Projects New Generation Art Group Exhibition, FQ Projects Monologue Group Exhibition,Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art “In Between Reality and Fiction” Animamix Biennale, FQ Projects “Loners” solo show, group show of The Avant Grade Diaries Project Space in New York, as well as the Shanghai International Contemporary Art Fair, Art Stage Singapore, Art021 and Sixteenth Annual Los Angeles Art Show Los Angeles.

YUI画廊很荣幸地推出王大卫个展—城市之诗。此次展览中,除《广场》为赴美前所画,其余作品皆是其近三年在美国生活的创作成果。

王大卫一直饱有“一窥生活”的欲望与热情。在其早期作品中,随处可见上海市井生活的烟火气。而身处异域后,陌生化的语境赋予了他更为内敛与疏离的气质,他得以用边缘者的身份捕捉西方现代都市中的静寂与孤独。在这批作品中,人物往往被虚化处理,人物细节消失、轮廓消融,强化了人物在空间中的不确定感,也加深了人对于自身存在的不安。颜色的处理上,大量的冷色调,灰色、蓝色、绿色等来强调人物所处的背景,又以刺激性的红色或橙色提亮画面色调。此种冷暖色的强烈对比,也凸显了身处其中的现代人的孤独。他试图在虚实、动静、冷暖、现实与梦幻之间,寻求结合与张力,描绘现代都市中个体梦呓与诗性的瞬间。

材料的运用上,王大卫持续探索各种绘画媒介的可能性。此次画展中,他糅合东西方绘画的元素与媒介,将传统的中国宣纸与现代绘画材料丙烯结合,构建了一幅具有后现代气质的异域雪景图《早春》。在《两个保安》中,他以手撕拼贴“保安”的方法,消解“制服带来的压迫”,为画面增添某种诗意的稚拙。技术上的实验性与艺术家精神上的顽童气质同脉相延,画作中失真或者萌化的个体、被刻意彩虹化的天空,王大卫通过艺术上的创造与革新,完成对现实生活的重构,提醒观众成人世界中失落的童真。

王大卫,1984年生于上海,2015年毕业于上海师范大学美术学院MFA,现生活于纽约。曾参与非青计划新生代艺术群展,上海当代艺术馆《寓意非/现实》动漫美学双年展,非青计划自言自语群展,非青计划《我们身边的人》个展,《上海经,山海经》双个展,《孤独者》个展,纽约新锐作品群展,以及上海国际当代艺术博览会,艺术登陆新加坡博览会和洛杉矶艺博会等。
