InBetween Art and Science
Private View:30th November – 1st December, 6.00 – 10.00 pm
Exhibition Venue: Portland Place, W1B
Reggy Liu was born in Harbin, China. She is currently a postgraduate student of Art and Science at Central Saint Martin’s, London.
Her area of specialization is the relationship between art and science, a rapidly evolving field of study and practice in the twenty-first century that advocates the pursuit of innovation in practice and research, and the cross fertilization of both artistic and scientific inspiration.
Reggy Liu’s current research direction, and indeed the work featured in this exhibition centres on the confluence of art and science, especially with the latter’s relationship to social psychology.
Liu’s work has recently been exhibited and lauded at major arts events in France, organized in conjunction with Paris Fashion Week (October 2017). The upcoming solo exhibition in London – ‘Art and Science’ will be presented at Portland Place, Marylebone, and will include major new paintings, prints and sculptural works.
The exhibition itself will be divided into two sections:
PERFECT AND IMPERFECT
Liu writes: Everyone in the real world lives under their own mask, we pretend to be what we want to be, whether we drift or persist in ourselves, and we foresee losing me, or becoming I/ him/ her, the mask getting thicker and thicker, which is difficult to realize the masks of themselves and others. This neglected invisible mask has made the sincere exchange in between people communicate into a gulf. As an Asian girl living in London, she expresses her feelings about the phenomena, experiences and visions of the moment. A few sources, these are based on self or group of internal and external response to changes and social psychology.
Liu writes: “Hedonism” A series of A1 size screen prints made of acrylic fluorescent pigments. The work’s term “hedonism” means living and behaving in ways that mean you enjoy as much joy as you can in life, based on the belief that the most important thing in life is to enjoy yourself and to make mankind happy. Different from the real world, artwork is used to retain the spiritual world of its own fantasies and to avoid other constraints. This group of works of art will have different effects due to different lighting conditions, especially under UV light. More about the meaning of this group of works of art is to convey the sense of art and perception of the audience.
