Buwei Hu/不为

b. 1996


“I enjoy observing the gestures of cats and people that I am intimate with. I use observational drawing or camera to capture such gestures, and then extract the elements I need from them, deconstruct and refine them into semi-abstract symbols and reconstruct them in my oil paintings. I will choose conflicting colors to try to create spaces and scenes that are different from the plain reality. My painting is not a tool to convey concepts. The ultimate goal of painting is the pure image factor, conflict and balance, and the sense of touch brought by brush strokes.”
