Paintings by Suo Yutong
Heartscape is no ordinary landscape. Each work is Suo Yutong’s dialogue with life, a chronicle of her steadfast patience as well as her undaunted sincerity as an artist.
All paintings in this exhibition are composed of tens of thousand pieces of small fine hooks, meticulously grouped and textured on paper into recognizable topography.
These works stand for the artist’s personal struggles against the mundane world around her and the serenity that she derived from completing the paintings.
The Heartscape series also consists of works finished with sewn thread and hair, and three-dimensional pieces built with tiny round beads.
Suo graduated from the Department of Oil Painting of the China Academy of Art in 1999 and completed the main postgraduate courses of that same academy the next year. She now lives and works in Beijing.
The Heartscape exhibition is to open on August 2nd , 2012 at Art Beatus Hong Kong. For further information or interview with the artist, you can contact us at [email protected] or call Dominic Chan at 2522-1138 or Josephine Hau at 2526-0818.
