Da Xiang oil Painting and Sculptures Solo Show
Printed receipts are a record of everyday consumption and shopping. They carry details such as the time and place of the purchases, as well as the names and prices of the purchased items. The works adopt the format of Chinese scrolls and use Chinese calligraphy as an expressive means to highlight the visual and humanistic dimension of printed receipts. Fragmented details of the process of consumption as shown on receipts are magnified and copied with a zeal and intensity that borders on a paranoid obsession. Meanwhile the boundary between text and installation as separate art forms becomes blurred. These works carry a temporal dimension. They record the changes in the format and contents of different kinds of printed receipts with time. In fact, they can also be seen as an alternative collection of everyday activities of consumption.
In this very early spring, we are pleased to announce the 1st solo exhibition of Da Xiang at F2 Gallery. Da Xiang's solo exhibition will feature his new oil paintings and sculptures that have never been exhibited before.
