Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce VIRTUAL SANCTUARY, a solo exhibition by Chinese artist, Shen Zhenglin.

In his recent series, Mnemosyne, Shen Zhenglin draws inspiration from the forms of the Greek Goddess of Memory and Remembrance, Mnemosyne. By stripping away any religious or mythical context, he reinterprets these classical sculptures in our modern time, using bold colours that are representative of the contemporary time. He attempts to stimulate the viewers' senses to create a spatial supernatural energy that connects the viewers to his paintings.

Through observing figurative forms and geometric shapes, Zhenglin explores the idea of abstraction in his works. Each of his abstract paintings are meticulously planned with a basic structure that evolves as he progresses. By painting and scratching the canvas with a brush, palette knife or even his hands, he is able to fully express himself. Zhenglin’s paintings are a form of visual language that portrays the way he calmly observes the world - of its past, present, and future.

In this exhibition, Shen Zhenglin will showcase selected works from 2014 to his most recent series.
