About the project
"These two works for Louis Vuitton's 200th birthday continue my felt paintings series ‘Study in Figures’ that I began in 2016, they also present a brand new visual experience in terms of image creation and scale. The bright, strong colours and expressive textures in the work are inspired by the legendary Louis Vuitton. Felt has always been an important material for me, it guides me to experiment and explore practice and creation of art. As a painting medium, felt broadens possibilities and potentials of painting. When a felt painting is viewed at a close range, it creates a unique experience with its fabric like plush surface and its ability to absorb sound, thus generating a sound-insulated space within which viewers can engage with the work. My entire painting process is an echo of memory and its waning in a wider context, which coincidentally testifies to the unique temporality of painting itself."
