LU CHAO I BLACK BOX
Hadrien de Montferrand Gallery is delighted to announce a solo show of Lu Chao entitled “Black Box” on March 11 featuring more than 10 recent works of the artist including oil paintings, works on paper and paintings on wood board. Following on the solo shows “Black Forest”, “Black Mirror” and “Black Light”, this is the fourth cooperation of the artist with the gallery. The artist uses painting to express feelings of mystery and strangeness. We specially invited critic Sun Dongdong to interview Lu Chao. Sun Dongdong mentioned that “Lu Chao is a conventional artist and a ‘historical’ person who narrates in an ambiguous way, although his works never show an actual event. In his paintings, our sense of history is the experience of the cycle of life which, encountered in certain scenes, can evolve into a general sense of reality.
