20080515 Enchanted Paradise by multi-media artist Qing Qing
multi-media artist Qing Qing, the show Enchanted Paradise
when i first came in the Exhibition, i only show something like this !!
But it is not a picture/painting !! it is a 3D clothes made by some material like grass.
When you look far away, it wan’t really special. but you walk closer, you can see some small flower inside.
Qing Qing artworks are so different to other artist. Most of them are Layer design with putting in a lightbox. From different distance will getting a different point of view.
When we are standing aroung 2-3m close, it will be only a 2D work. But some of the viewing feom 5-10m away, it becoming 3D.
From my point of view, Qing Qing had put many many ideas about her Mother-Land “CHINA” with mixing of the History and Gender “SEX RACE”.
Most of her work showing the power/force of man inside her mind/country. She do put Male Sex Organ inside her work, but somehow she want to saying man powers are coming from woman! If you cannot see, lets go to Schoeni Art Gallery and have a look.
The red colour artwork above is the once i like most. From different position will seeing different 2D and 3D things and different colour and message hide inside that !! You really can feeing a 2D artwork look like a real fish jar !
Qing Qing really do a good work in multi-media “Material, Gender, Light, Layers, 3D work”
you should spend sometime to go and have a look !! 🙂
