Running until 20 August,  Loi Cai Xiang will be exhibiting new work at Chan+Hori Contemporary. The series titled VOID is a “ramification from his previous series of intimate spaces, and withdraws from the external (immediate surrounding) to the internal (self)”.

(from the press release)

The author finds values in personal experiences, drawing stimulation and empathy from nostalgia and sense of familiarity to visually reenact a mental scar or emotional blemishes. Beyond the soliloquy, the works also speak, with interest, of consciousness and awareness, of being and self, in relation to the masses.

Void taps into an emotional resonance from seemingly familiar spaces where personal emotional stimulation is present. The catalyst behind Void arises from a sense of intimacy and familiarity that one shares with the environment and space, and in so, rekindles experiences and memory. The spontaneity between the environment and personal experiences bounces off against each other, collides and interacts until a point of resonance is reached. Like an actor interpreting a dialogue, the paintings draw from personal experiences and first impression to interpret the environment and synthesizes new narrative with metaphors and stimuli into a palpable and stark visual poetry. This constant need to define a void that resides between us and the physical world is an attempt to make sense and create a synthetic connection to explain a state of being. This endeavor is a personal exploration for sensibility to define a private gulf that exist between my conscious and subconscious state of mind.
