We are proud to present the second exhibition of Gallery Func this summer, 'The Fiction', in which we will present the work of seven promising artists.

The works in this exhibition, although they all are figurative painting, break away from the basic rules of traditional figurative painting and are post-modern and futuristic. These works vividly present the daily psychological states and rituals of life that are easily overlooked by us. The artists are concerned with the current situation of self-fragmentation in the information society, and they try to explore the real existence through painting.

The artists are both participants and spectators in their own lives. They watch the human life force unfold in the wider context and then, from their own selves, search for the port of balance between real life and imagination, which is the port of their artworks. They use their individual subjects as the base for their conceptual and pictorial structures, and use skilled techniques to embellish the complex expressions of their subjects, effectively and directly conveying their respective languages.

The realistic mood of the work is both familiar and new to the viewer, and the artist is placing the viewer in the real and fantastical world created by the painting itself, making the viewing of the painting more like reading some amazing narratives. It is as if something important has been snatched from this fictional world based on reality, leaving a big hole for us all to jump into and fill.

All of the works discuss the wonders of human existence as a living creature. The uncertainty of life itself is artfully displayed in each work. The sense of confusion about the future and the vibrant, throbbing energy of adolescence come crashing down on the dull and stagnant psychological world that drives adults. These works here become a spiritual stimulus for us, awakening our dormant senses.
