Shang Yixin (尚一心)

10995

2013

80 cm (h) x 80 cm (l)

Acrylic & concentrated ink on linen

Multiple layers of paint have been sprayed over a regular square stencil to create intense patterns. Slight cross-shaped variations in the geometric field generate a sensation of sight rushing inwards or of something coming out from the canvas. The work presents an unwavering purpose and hours of systematic input. Here is control—of form and color (the painting uses a palette, graduated by the layers, of black and white or a mustard-brown). The collective impression is of rational tightness brought about by the elimination of chance—the work reaches, visually, for the abstract truth of pure mathematics. The artist’s control over the tone and saturation of the pigment is rooted in his constant experimentation. As a result, in the course of rationally, consciously arranging and planning the work, its “trajectory” is slowly generated. In other words, Shang’s practice does not engage cultural phenomena or emotional expression; rather, it is a rational appeal achieved through a process of sensorial experimentation.
