Hong Kong ─ Leo Gallery is pleased to present Integrative Structure, an exhibition by Chinese Contemporary artist Li Yiwen (b.1982). This exhibition will be Li’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong.

Integrative Structure is a Chinese calligraphy term which means the structure, brush strokes arrangement and position of Chinese characters; as well as the rules of variation on the ink fluidity and density. This term reminds Li of the elements of painting ranging from form, space, colour, line to texture, and the mutual symbiosis between these elements. He believes audience’s perception is stimulated by these elements since they trigger a series of unquantifiable emotional reactions such as gratitude, sorrow, joyous, depression, awe and more. Perception is an experience full of wonder, and Li mentions, “art touched us deeply in perceptions which cannot be interpreted by languages.”

In his work, Li has no intention to get to the bottom of any Chinese theory discussion. He focuses on the functions of perception rather than the logic of conceptual art and painting, attempting to integrate the concepts into the paintings.

This exhibition showcases Li’s recent paintings which contain no narrative elements and visitors are encouraged to experience through their perception so as to provoke a new reading of the exhibition narrative in their own way.
