Paitings Gu Yue is presenting on this exhibition are chosen from the works he has created over the past three years as a postgraduate student in Art College. Other medias like installations, video films and photo works can also be found on this exhibition.
Through Gu Yue’s practice in creating art pieces with different medias, we could trace a clear feature of his works: the sharp criticism and questioning—the sensitivity to catch any reality that reflects the real world in individuals’ eyes. In this sense, Gu Yue’s paintings exhibited this time represent his development in two directions: his reflection on the “picture age” we are living in, and his discovery of people’s real life condition from pictures. There is never fine line between the two directions. But in Gu Yue’s works, the relationship between picture and reality has been shifted.
