Solo exhibition now on until 28 February 2017 at the Temple House
The Temple House’s A Thousand Plateaus Art Space has launched the solo exhibition of artist Kumi Usui’s “Ai Yo”. The exhibition is on now until 28th February 2017.
Usui’s most recent paintings and installation works are based on the theme of Love and Lines. “Lines” are essential elements in Usui’s artworks: they constantly change and expand, which resonate with Usui’s vast imaginations.
She often found herself pondering on creations, life, destructions, corrosion, the environment, the Nature, the Universe, the surroundings, and the patterns in life…etc. All these imaginations were transformed into forms of lines, flowing and projected on her chosen media.
The inspiration of Kumi Usui’s artworks naturally flowed from her heart: a convergence of her inner-self and her understandings of the World. Her works reflect the belief of a Song-Dynasty philosopher, “your heart is the Universe.” Usui’s belief and artworks carry significance to Chinese contemporary art.
The Temple House’s art space in Bi Tie Shi, A Thousand Plateaus Art Space is the result of a long-term collaboration between The Temple House and the Chengdu-based art gallery to promote exhibitions and contemporary art.
