Paper Memory – Sun Jin solo exhibition
By Xue Tao
Contemporary Yunnan has been promoting a Solo Exhibition Program for local Young artists within 2013. Sun Jing’s solo exhibition, as the third one involved in this program, presents some daily routines works and sketches she created casually.
Usually, an artist works and accomplishes the art work creation in a formal state, especially when they use canvas for their painting, this “formal” sense becomes more evident and the artist can easily enter into a state of preciseness and control and arrange the painting appropriately. On the contrary, with a piece of paper, which can be grabbed anywhere, or a sketch book use for recording their instant ideas and inspiration, in hand, they can relax them into an unconstrained woolgathering state. This relaxation may inspire the artist with some free and natural thoughts, and then result in appearing vivid and lively objects on the paper.
Sun Jin likes cartoon. The cartoon thinking has been affecting her all the time, and has already become an inseparable part of her. In the same time, Sun Jin’s thinking has been invisibly and formatively influenced by this Japanese style cartoon. And this influence resulted partially in some habits, and partially in reflection through her professional art creation. Cartoon thinking has been a style she views the world. She enjoys this style and even developed a special approach to catch and depict a vivid image, and also thereout be equipped with a unique sensitivity and perception. Different individual imagination can be experienced on her works in this exhibition.
These arbitrary but mysterious manuscripts in exhibition are reflecting her secret and imperceptible thinking segments. It is a journey on the paper, through which one’s real spirit can be touched.
