“Immortal Spirit---Sun Ziyao” is the first exhibition of LinBART Gallery in 2017. The theme of exhibition pointing to the creation of the "Immortal Spirit" which is the metaphor of both flesh and spirit, and it is also the product of both history and contemporary.
The artist wants to show the link between the body and soul. Following the evolution curve of people to beast, the artist tries to make people restore to the meat of an initial state or the enlightenment of the soul. The media of the creation broke the single medium. The artist uses carbon lead、ink、tea stains、resin base、paper and other materials to deduce his unique art language. He is skilled in exploring and using the peculiarity of material itself to achieve multiple possibilities where we can entry the frame with our own visual angle, and explores the intriguing visual tension. The artist has always emphasized on the trace of the water on paper. The unique liquidity, disconnection, controllability, and unknown creativity of trace itself let him indulge in the accidentally bizarre world, which further prompt the audience to envisage the individual consciousness and spiritual pursuit in the image.
As the artist is a social individual, solo exhibition is supposed to be their voice. When the art no longer emphasize the human's appearance or the particularity of body structure between men and women, the most primitive and the most natural animality all reveal, which combines people and beast without any obstacles. What the artist wants to talk about is not any species in the nature, but the human and humanity, or themselves. For audience, they acquire an experience that they want to face but also fear, experiencing an assault on the senses with thinking.
