Chinese artist Liu Weijian is exhibiting his paintings at “The Stage With Light” exhibition in Guangming.

Liu’s paintings are impressive in scale and there is something unsettling and uncanny. He elaborates on the notion of space, both interior and exterior, and how such spaces seem to construct their own narration. Often, these spaces are laden with anonymity and vastness, whether it be new industrial buildings or run-down generic habitats.

Adding to the aura of ambiguity is what he does in his paintings. His scenes, which commonly feature windows and doors, tend to serve as a reminder that there are other worlds just outside his canvas.
