THE LIGHTNESS OF BEING
Leng Hong、Pauline Ohrel
Opening Reception：2019.11.2 5 - 8pm
Exhibition Dates： 2019.11.2 - 12.29
Each of Leng Hong’s works highlights the eternal nature of classical aesthetic - his personal technique with ink on paper, close to the one he uses with oil on canvas, is evocative of the techniques of making ancient frescoes. The lines, the colors, thickness and transparency are part of the pictorial language that has become his own. He illustrates once more his favorite themes of dreamlike landscapes, still life and characters inspired by Classical Chinese poetry. From Leng’s paintings emerges an atmosphere of mystery and nostalgia - a narrative reinforced by the display of Pauline Ohrel’s sculptures. Created from monochromatic wire mesh her elegant silhouettes, birds and faces are like aerial drawings either floating or standing in an uncanny stillness, their shadows reflecting an intangible likeness.
