Cuturi Gallery is delighted to present Sunlight, Air and Water, a solo exhibition by Taiwanese artist Ruo-Hsin Wu (b.1993, Taiwan). In this new series of works, the artist presents 8 new paintings which explore different moments of her childhood that have marked her through to adulthood. Through her paintings she conveys her emotions of grief, sadness, and hope.
The title of the exhibition derives from a painting called Sunlight, Air and Water. In difficult periods of her life, she took refuge in nature. “When in grief or pain, I often wondered as a child, why my life could not rely simply on basic needs, like the needs of plants. All they need is sunlight, air and water…”. In this painting, the artist paints one of her characters holding what looks like a pet box. Inside is a body lying on the grass, in total symbiosis with the natural world.
