It all begins in the sea
28 February - 29 March 2014
Gallery EXIT is pleased to present “It all begins in the sea”, LING Pui Sze’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.
Developed from Ling's fascination with images found in biological and marine research, the featured ink compositions are simulations of the trajectories of organic form evolution.
Core to her practice is a process-based research to understand the fluid and intuitive stages of cell reproduction. Through a process of reduction and dispersion, strips of ink-jet printed images of cells and watermarks are juxtaposed and layered following the strip’s shape and pattern. As the thin fragments of cells group together to form organic constellations, ink strokes are applied to the painting's surface, enabling organisms to grow both in depth and texture.
Water patterns, amorphous organism, fossils and sea creatures are just some of the forms that emerge out of these rich canvases. Sometimes faces or even eyes appear out of the multilayered surface, emerging in complete autonomy.
