Hang Chunhui never confines the artwork to be either abstract or representational but instead constructs an ambiguous territory of looking between the two-dimensionality of “painting” and the three-dimensionality of “sculpture”. Through the reflective qualities of paint as visible in the practice of colors, Hang Chunhui combines changes in light projections with linear rolling motions of sculpture to construct a “paradoxical” way of viewing. Visual logics along with the artist’s concepts introduce again the notion of “ambiguity”; this form of “ambiguity” is a return to the examination of “painting” and “sculpture” which finds its roots in the reveries of conceptual beauty. Hang Chunhui’s art can be viewed as a visual curiosity from the East but also a standpoint of contemporary creatives.
