Lai Sut Weng, the winner of “Orient Foundation Art Award” in 2014, will have her first Macau solo exhibition “Interposition – Works by Lai Sut Weng” in AFA on October 14 (Friday), at 6:30 p.m. She even creates a new series for the exhibition, a total of nine oil paintings will be showcased and they are all Lai’s latest artworks.
In these few years, Lai has created with a cubic brush stroke, which turns into a method to degenerate and slice the scenes. This irrational division shuffles the scene and restructures the scene and becomes a unique feature of her works. In this solo exhibition, she intends to construct an ‘Anyway Door’ which, when opened, allows the arbitrary transferable of anything within the universe with her slicing brush strokes.
‘Interposition’ is a method of creation and a metamorphosis on Lai’s career path. Using the features of Macau’s street as the background, create different urban amusement parks meticulously devised by the artist. The door of a house on the backstreet was transformed into an entrance to a circus. Teacups spin in the city. Streets are struck with balloons thus traffic access is not possible. Buses are occupied by huge birds. Elephant wants to play with you, while Bear can hardly sit still and Rabbit wishes to take you out of your study…
The opening of “Interposition – Works by Lai Sut Weng” will take place in AFA Macau at 6:30p.m. on October 14 (Friday).
