Liang Manqi: Conceptions of Parallel Event
24 September 2021 - 30 October 2021Free
Contemporary by Angela Li is proud to present “Conceptions of Parallel Event”, Liang Manqi’s second Hong Kong solo exhibition, showcasing eleven of her most recent oil paintings.
Liang became a full-time artist after obtaining her Master of Fine Art degree from the CDK (Chinesisch- Deutshe Kunstakademie) project, a joint degree programme of the University of the Arts, Berlin and the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou. Her works explore how space, media and colour convert their relationships between real and virtual contexts in polygonal dimensions.
Colour blocks, lines, and geometry are the basic elements in Liang Manqi’s abstract art. With her intuition and curiosity, She constructs shapes, lines, and colour scales to create a unique sense of aesthetic in contemporary art. Her works incorporate symbols that resonate with Western rationalism and embrace Eastern philosophy, that seeking harmony in everything is the key to a state of calmness, psychological order and self-understanding. In her works, these geometric patterns are arranged irregularly yet still reflecting each other, as a result evolving into a multi-dimensional universe full of unknowns. Having colours intersected by patterns tangibly or intangibly on geometric planes, the artist’s inner conflict between abstraction and concreteness, rationality and sensibility may be explained through the process of creating an emotional field.
