Art SG 2023
Galerie Vazieux is pleased to present a solo show dedicated to Rao Fu 傅饶 (b.1978, Beijing), for the launch of the art fair Art SG 2023 in Singapore. The gallery exhibits recent artworks of the Chinese artist – large paintings on canvas along with small works on paper – inviting to immerse oneself in his narrative and mysterious world.
Rao Fu is particularly interested in landscapes, which he likes to represent in all their potency and immensity. Using double or triple perspective, he augments the landscape’s grandeur and includes several visual fields in the same picture, creating a captivating immersive effect for the viewer.
The ghostlike and almost transparent figures that people his large landscapes merge into an environment, which becomes the mirror of their emotions and those of the painter. According to Rao Fu, his landscapes reflect his inner world but can also be freely interpreted.
In his narrative and mysterious world, eras and Eastern and Western cultures coexist and are naturally combined. He attempts to render the essence and pure expression of man, to create a universal art that transcends cultural diversities.
