On April 15th, Landscape 9210-SHEN Fan Solo Exhibition will be presented in ShanghART H-Space. Three new created big installation works follow his unique personal style, but break out his habitual media. One is installation with oil paintings on canvas, another two are made from mix media.
The work of Shen Fan seems different from the other things in the normal world. But their contents are totally similar. From 2003, Shen Fan enters his Landscape Period, form changes but the spirit remains. It is created to foot on essence, and expression is open and steady, it conveys the past and the future. It concentrates different ages and is independent in the same time. It is not a game but the presentation of thoughts. It is not action but attitude.
