L+/ Lucie Chang Fine Arts is delighted to present, Circulating Vitality, a solo exhibition introducing a series of exquisite masterpieces of Liu Ke, who is one of the pioneer of contemporary abstract art in Guangzhou, China. Liu’s works are unevenly arranged by blocks of colors and stripes. With the compositional form of layers overlapping on to one another, tensions are rendered on canvas. While the variations in the distances between the boundaries of blocks and between the edges and its frame accidentally or deliberately constitute the changes in its forces, it visually captures the phenomenological nature of flow of energy in life. Having the series of particular form of works continued to be created, just as a world of power circulation lies upon the surroundings and humans that sustainably continues.

Liu Ke was born in Hunan, China in 1976. He received his master degree from The Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts (GAFA) in 2003 and became the associate professor of Oil Painting department in GAFA in the same year. Currently, Liu is appointed to be several vital roles in the art industry in the area, including vice-president of the School of Painting, the dean of the department of Oil Painting in GAFA, General Secretary of Oil Painting Arts Committee of Guangdong, and representative of several art spaces in Guangzhou. His commitment towards development of art in Guangzhou and even in China is significant in 3 aspects – art experiments, art space running and art education, and has become one of the key influencer in the art industry. Working with lines and shapes since 2012, Liu believes in abstraction and simplicity. “The clearer the form, the less expressive it is to reveal its intrinsic structure and spirit.” His works have evolved from meticulous structures to more simplified ones in recent years over a journey of tortuous exploration. His works has been exhibited widely in museums and institutions in China, Germany, Italy, Thailand and etc., and has been displayed in Guangdong Museum of Art, Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, and currently in Hubei Institute of Fine Arts.

The forthcoming Circulating Vitality marks Liu Ke’s debut solo exhibition in Hong Kong, illustrating the intrinsic relationship between visual elements and canvases, canvases and the world’s vitality through a contemporary approach of abstract art.

L+/ Lucie Chang Fine Arts 很高興舉辦劉可個展——「循環能量」,向大家展示中國廣州當代抽象藝術的先驅之一,劉可教授的一系列傑作。劉可的作品運用色塊、色條之間互相滲透、覆蓋、疊壓,讓畫面形成一平衡的空間。隨著色板層之間的縫隙大小的變化,以及色塊與畫布邊界之間的拉距,有意無意地釋放出「力量對陣」,在視覺上捕捉了生命中能量流動的現象。而新作品在特定的路徑和形式中不斷的產生,塑造出人與環境之間,一個能量循環的世界,並無止境地延伸下去。

劉可1976年出生於中國湖南。2003年於廣州美術學院油畫系研究生畢業,同年成油畫系任教。目前,劉同時當任當地藝術圈的多個重要角色,包括廣州美術學院繪畫學院副院長、油畫系系主任,廣東油畫藝術委員會秘書長等,以及廣州幾個藝術空間的負責人。他對廣州乃至中國藝術發展的貢獻,體現在個人創作、空間運行和藝術教育三方面,成為當代藝術領袖之一。劉可從2012年開始以條狀的色塊來構建畫面,相信抽象和簡潔。「作品具有越清晰的形態,越不足以表達其內在結構和精神。」近年來,他的作品在細緻的探索和實踐中,逐漸趨向更簡化的結構。他的作品分別在中國,德國,意大利和泰國的博物館與不同機構中展出。廣東美術館,四川美術學院美術館均有展出,目前在湖北美術學院美術館展覽中。

「循環能量」展覽即將開幕,標誌著劉可在香港的首次個展,通過抽象藝術的方式展現了視覺元素與畫布、畫布與能量流動之間的微妙關係。
