This new body of work by the UK-based duo showcases their uniquely distinguishable compositions of acrylic paintings and archival ballpoint pen works.
Shifting Times embraces two concepts; flowing deconstructed landscapes portraying a serene isolation through introspection and sharp-edged geometrics exuding speed and energy. These parallel narratives are characterised by the duo’s distinct line work. The process is a methodical building of thin intricate lines upon each other creating strength to the work indicating solidity in numbers. The result showing powerful kinetic compositions while a delicacy remains.
The works delve into the connection between colour and shape using colour shifts to create dynamic movement. The lines can change your perception of the shape while the foreground and background invite you to float in-between the two. The tidal-like waves and energetic sunbursts represent environmental uncertainty but always hopeful of a brighter future through meaningful change.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Kai & Sunny have collaborated with Element Skateboards on a series of new skate decks. The artists will also release a limited edition 6 colour silkscreen print and a limited edition vinyl E.P by Toydrum. There will be a giveaway of the record to the first 10 people who arrive at the opening reception.
