On the occasion of the finissage of Li Shurui’s exhibition at Connoisseur Art Gallery and Connoisseur Contemporary, VernissageTV met with the artist who is using airbrush to create large format paintings. Her solo exhibition titled after herself, LSR, presents new and older work, giving an insght into her chosen subject matter. In this video, Li Shurui talks about the exhibition, her artistic development, and new projects. Connoisseur Contemporary is presenting her work at the upcoming Scope Basel.
“From lights to colours, Li Shurui is now working with bolder colours, die-cut and larger canvases, different permutations and formats, changing perceptions and creating illusions. Moving from the use of a predominant single shade, she is using a myriad of colours to form mirror symmetries, and compelling, mind boggling compositions that create a perspective of depth and a three-dimensional effect.
The result is a highly charged and immersive atmosphere that engulfs our visual senses, invades our spatial boundary and heightens our sensory experience.” (Statement from the gallery website).
