mixed media painting by Ye Hongxing
Opening Reception on 18 Oct, 6:30-9 pmYe Hongxing’s new series of mixed media works of art is composed of brightly coloured sequins and glass beads, which create a mesmerizing blend of a myriad different elements including fantastical figures, religious imagery and tropical flora and fauna.
Ye Hongxing states that her work is a commentary on the swift development of China’s social system. She represents iconographic figures and religious symbols with kitsch material, a startling juxtaposition and unsettling contrast between the sacred and the profane, the respected elite and the trashy commercial.
