Play in the Sun

The sun in spring is the most fresh, while the air is full of fascinating leisure and pleasure. “Play in the Sun” is the first exhibition of Homeless Gallery in this wonderful season. "Green field" means that the art works in this exhibition are relating to the natural world typically represented by green. Moreover, it also refers to the inner world full of unrestrained and vigorous style that brims with talent.

Artist Xiao Juan probably is an urban bucolic painter. Her works is always themed human and the mysterious yet resting world in her mind, delivering the delicate touching moments in her life. With her ultra-realistic mode of thinking, she fuses her childhood memories with the adult thoughts in reality for re-creation. The simple, unpretentious and casual brushworks always bring endless possibilities to her painting. Possibly only a female artist's delicate and sensitive wisdom can reach such achievements.

The works shown in this exhibition are carefully selected by the painter from her previous work series. After painting people and objects surrounding her, she combined human and animals together in one painting rather than simply focusing on human or animals alone, revealing her creation path growing more flexible. After appreciating her paintings one by one, in the casually-painted works, we can see the vivid leopard, naughty gorillas, lively birds that all tease under the artist's brushworks, making viewers feel admirable and imagining the person who disappeared from the paintings seem to be in the same atmosphere. Hereby all people busy with work are invited to appreciate Xiao Juan's works relying on which you may have a total relaxation as free as on a "green field".
