Luo Mingjun: Lointains

Katy Donoghue

24 September 2020

Luo Mingjun’s latest works are on view at Galerie Gisèle Linder, in an exhibition centered on the importance of distance. Most of the works in “Lointains” were created during the epidemic, a time that redefined the question of the value of distance. The artist projected this experience—where distance became a luxury—onto her artistic work. The play with light and dark is omnipresent in Mingjun’s work. Alongside the oil paintings that are now typical in the artist’s practice, the exhibition also features pencil drawings that capture the variety of light properties, using different pressures of the pencil application. With a few instinctively and lightly applied watercolor paintings, the artist now also brings more color and abstract compositions into her work. This new body of work is not rigid and precise, it is located between the recognizable and the uncertain, the tangible and the unattainable—a connection between here and an unreachable distance.
