Liu Di - A STUBBORNLY PERSISTENT ILLUSION

149,00 €Preis

Liu Di has a predilection for images that leave a lasting impression on the viewer. Many of his influences come from science fiction such as Douglas Adams and Stanislaw Lem. He crafts these influences into an entirely novel universe with a strong philosophical subtext. Each of his series tail blazes a new personal aesthetics across the richness of his wide-scale panoramas. This aesthetic is marked by distinct color coordinations, and his expertise in digital imaging makes for a filing of live-headedness on a quite stage. His works usually employ cinematic imagery, often from a first-person perspective, presenting awe-inspiring combinations of animals, giants, lush vegetations, elaborate interior design and chaotic urbanisation. His palette of bright tones, reminiscent of high Renaissance canvases, permeates into the finest details of his futuristic scenes, and the heightened consciousness inherent in his approach contributes to narrative complexity. Through this hypnotic imagery, Liu Di carries the viewer via their unconscious into a discourse on human existence and its future. He has ingenious ways to bring to light the thorniest elements of human nature in colourful and assured fashion. He is a true futurist at heart; a meticulous observer of history with a deep concern for the preoccupations of this day and age. As an artist he pairs a refined sentiment of Hobbesian cautiousness with boundless sci-fi fantasy. In these imaginative creations, he instrumentalists a symbolism that oscillates between poor figures and existentialist humanism. His vision sparks questions about human and animal rights, urbanisation, ecology, and the hegemony of technology. Liu Di's works inspired an uncanny sense of both hope and melancholy. His imaginations a fantastically intricate expression of humankind in the present moment.

柳笛对那些给观者留下深刻印象的图像情有独钟。他的许多灵感来自科幻作品,如道格拉斯·亚当斯和斯坦尼斯瓦夫·莱姆。他将这些影响融入到一个全新的宇宙中,并赋予其中强烈的哲学内涵。他的每个系列都在广阔的全景画面上创造了新的个人美学。这种美学以独特的色彩协调为特征,而他在数字影像方面的专业知识则使得舞台上的现场感倍增。他的作品通常采用电影般的图像,往往从第一人称视角呈现出令人敬畏的动物、巨人、蓬勃生长的植物、精心设计的室内装饰和混乱的城市化场景的组合。他的色调鲜明的调色板,使人联想到高文艺复兴时期的画布,渗透到他未来主义场景的最细节之中,而他的方法所蕴含的提高的意识有助于叙事的复杂性。通过这种引人入胜的意象,柳笛将观者带入他们的潜意识中,进行关于人类存在及其未来的对话。他有巧妙的方式以多彩而自信的方式展现人性的棘手因素。他在内心深处是一位真正的未来派;他是对历史的细致观察者,对当今时代的关切深刻。作为一个艺术家,他将霍布斯式的谨慎情感与无限的科幻幻想相配合。在这些富有想象力的创作中,他运用了一种在贫困人物和存在主义人道主义之间摇摆的象征主义。他的视野引发了关于人类和动物权利、城市化、生态学和技术霸权的问题。柳笛的作品唤起了一种希望和忧郁并存的神秘感。他的想象力是对当下人类复杂表达的一个极具细致的表达。
