MyFactory.net is pleased to introduce Kong Lingnan, a young chineese artist.
Using basic colors she depicts the relationship between man and nature in an extremely poetic approach. Enhanced by the neon effect, her paintings give the impression of beeing at the same time in past/future, reality/virtuality, organic/object, earth/universe.
Kong is currently having a solo exhibition at Gallery Yang and I want to make a special thanks to Simon Wang (General Manager) and my friend Melanie (MLArtsource.com), who made me discover Kong's work. I am very proud to be among her collectors's list;)
"With the commonest oil color, Kong, holding the cautious attitude to skills and following the rational requirements on line arrangement, drew each line as if she was seeking for a kind of objective and essential state. Different from her previous serial works featuring cold pure black background, the newly finished works’ background turned to be gradient color from red to black, or vice versa; and for the first time, botanic element appeared in them. In the vast wilderness and mountains, there are figures blurred and ambiguous, fighting or rejoicing, being happy or sad. The idea is originated from the traditional Chinese Taoism, Chuangtse. It is a pure, simple, remote but primitive world, unique without a peer. Maybe this is the objective world we are living, which is never aware of due to human limitation at all. Kong paralleled the pure world and the worldly feelings together, with the trifling life, unknown plants, remote mountains and flickering stars being separated from the real world to the furthest distance. Everything is so familiar but also strange, lonely, sentimental, remote as if it is in another world..."
