 Chaohui Xie and Georgia Simitzis: Residue

Image1Image2

Description

The worlds created by Chaohui Xie and Georgia Simitzis are inspired by fragments and residues of mundane matters: tree barks and coins.

Georgia deploys acrylic paint and tree barks as media. The saturated colour formation of her paintings holds within it intricate tidiness and abstract expanse. The fluidity and the depth of her work embodies nature’s ceaseless metabolism.

Chaohui’s work explodes in pale silence. She collects coins from a pond, into which global visitors toss their coins as if it was a wishing well. In the chronicle development of her artistic practice, the coins got rotten, melted, disintegrated, abstracted, and allegorised.

While lacking apparent thematic echoing and contrasting in their styles of presentation, the two artists unite on a deeper level of questioning through materiality: origins, appearances, progresses, finiteness and infinity, and humanity as we know it.
