Featured Artist - Chenyi Sun
Chenyi Sun (1991, Shanghai, China). He has studied painting for many years. He is skilled at oil painting, water media, acrylic, sketch, pastel, printmaking, mixed media.Sun is using artistic languages to present his perception of a three-dimensional world in a two-dimensional picture while at the same time expressing ideas surrounding the feeling of isolation and loneliness. He is interested in exploring the relationship between people and the world in which they live. Relationships are always complicated, and everyone has their own perspective on the world and their relationship to it. Through isolation, He explore the sincerest version of the person inside. He found that using different reflections of mirrors and glass helps to increase space. The rooms or spaces he paints a narrow world where the feeling of isolation can be exaggerated. Whether alone at home or a crowded subway car, people can feel equally isolated. Meanwhile, most of his work will connect time and space to contrast the feeling of isolation between vagueness and reality. He presents this movement in his subway series.
