About the Exhibition
Kwai Fung Hin is delighted to present In Search of Dao – the Latest Works of Xue Song, which showcases more than 20 recent collage works from "The Dao from Nature" series created by the Chinese Pop artist since 2019.
Xue Song's art fuses East and West, ancient and modern, as well as fine arts and popular culture. His works are born from fire, through the destruction and regeneration of images, to form collaged compositions that represent a holistic yet diverse world. This exhibition presents the enlightenment and breakthrough of Xue Song's creative process in recent years, from narrative imagery to abstract forms of expression, and witnesses his thoughts on the laws of nature, his search for a harmonious relationship between the world and man, and his pursuit of the way of art. This exhibition is the third exhibition of the artist organized by Kwai Fung Hin since 2008 and 2014. It runs from 6 September to 15 October 2022.
Xue Song was born in Anhui, China in 1965. One of the most important artists of the Chinese "Pop Art" movement, he grew up in an era of dramatic changes during China's reform and opening up, with rapid social modernization, economic transformation, the rise of materialism, and a modern art movement that challenged traditional aesthetics. Living amidst the chaos of Shanghai, Xue Song shared the cultural outlook of the generation born in the 1960s: a profound, reflective approach to history combined with a strong sensitivity to contemporary changes. In exploring social facades and pursuing his unique style of art, he and his fellow artists contributed to the development of Chinese contemporary art.
