Started with Light 始于光线 Alice Yutong Hua 华雨桐
The decision was made with innocence; obviously, the plan went to a failure. However, I found the long-term process of destruction and reconstruction of an incorporeal idea was rather fascinating. The imaginations do not realize in a controllable manner. I would like to call the process a game. It started with light, ended with a game.”
The exhibition consists of the artist’s recent exploration of the “Light Series” painting. Through the flow and solidification of various materials and colors, the artist tries to capture a moment of ambivalence, as much as the threshold before a dramatic change repeatedly through the coexistence and development of light and dark. From Horror Game? to Peekaboo, from Something Precious to Laying on the grass, the piece arrangement also attempts to form an alternative rythm between light and dark by setting up specific abstract scenery.
