water-mixable oil on canvas

200 x 150 cm

Vemo Hang

Vemo Hang´s wall-mounted sculptural installations are exaggerated proportional models of Go/Weiqi game stones. For the installation, she uses the self-made ceramic wall sculptures in which she adds colored tapes for multi-dimensionality and to create relationship and composition among separate objects. The artist paints onto oval low-relief ceramic the landscape and people in muted tones of green, pink, beige and brown in flowing brush strokes. The images are the modern canon of the Shanshui, the traditional Chinese landscape genre she has practiced. She explores ideas about our relationship with the surrounding spaces, a constructed reality over given space and the shifting landscapes of traveller, inviting the viewer to contemplate on the notion of landscape and spatiality.
