Quantum – He Jia solo
4 May – 6 July 2024

Lucie Chang Fine Arts is pleased to present the solo exhibition "Quantum" featuring the artwork of He Jia, a
Naxi artist born in 1976. This exhibition showcases his paintings of material illusions, aiming to convey a visual experience surrounded by the void in the realm of uncertainty. It demonstrates the coexistence of visual freedom and boundaries.
He Jia, born in Yunnan and currently based in Beijing, has held solo and group exhibitions at art institutions
worldwide, including South Korea, the United States, Singapore, Thailand, and Germany. His works are
collected by renowned museums and foundations such as the National Art Museum of China, the White Rabbit Gallery in Australia, and the Robert Chaney Foundation. Recently, his artistic language has undergone a significant transformation, departing from his previous focus on social consumption and globalized entertainment to a greater emphasis on documenting individuals in everyday life and pursuing rhythm filled with poetry. However, in handling the composition, he still favors bold brushstrokes and employs peculiar visual elements to grasp abstract themes using representational techniques.
He Jia excels at expressing abstraction within figurative representations, often imbuing his brushstrokes with a spiritual aura, traversing through a colorful ocean. His recent works not only feature bright and vibrant colors that fill the entire canvas in a figurative manner but also exhibit a shift towards darker tones and deeper patterns, bringing together the interplay of abstraction and representation. Through the timeline of He Jia's artistic journey, his works reflect a deepening and introspective change in emotional sensitivity as one progresses into middle age, gradually perceiving the multi-layered progression of thoughts. He Jia believes that the artistic language and modes of expression in painting are closely related to the core spirit and evolving developments of contemporary technology. He constantly explores new methods and materials, engaging in interdisciplinary experiments, striving to achieve new breakthroughs in art.
The exhibition comprises two series of works: "Acidic Quantum" and "Transformative Quantum". Through
these artworks, He Jia attempts to convey that visual art, much like knowledge, always exists on the unstable edge. Just like the quantum world, matter is not composed of matter itself; reality is merely the existence of possibilities, and intangible entities constantly oscillate between certainty and uncertainty. The perception of the internet and electronic precognition has altered the scale of senses, giving rise to a new reality where blended realities become a "hybrid" of "virtual perception, cyber perception, and super-perception" through variations in technology and states of consciousness.
The solo exhibition "Quantum" offers viewers an opportunity to reflect on the impact of contemporary society and technological developments on our ways of cognition and perception. Through He Jia's artwork, we can contemplate the blurred boundaries between reality and virtuality and the relationship between technology and human nature. The exhibition aims to inspire viewers to ponder the intersection of art and technology and further explore the possibilities of visual art.

Lucie Chang Fine Arts 將呈現納西族藝術家和嘉(生於1976年)的個展「量子」。這次展覽將展示他物質
幻象的繪畫作品,以傳達透過視覺媒介在不確定的領域中創造出被虛無所包圍的視覺體驗,顯示出視
覺的自由同時存在著邊界。
和嘉生於雲南,現居北京,他曾在世界各地的藝術機構舉辦個展和群展,包括韓國、美國、新加坡、泰
國和德國等地。他的作品被中國美術館、澳大利亞白兔美術館、Robert Chaney基金會等知名美術館和基
金會收藏。最近,他的繪畫語言經歷了一次劇烈的變化,離開了過去對社會消費和全球化娛樂的關注,
更加注重記錄日常生活中的個體,追求充滿詩意的節奏。然而,在處理畫面時,他仍然喜歡濃重的筆
觸,善用奇特的視覺元素,以具象的技法掌握抽象的主題。
和嘉擅長在具象表現中展現抽象性,他的筆觸中常常蘊含靈性氣息,遊走在色彩斑斕的海洋中。他的
近期作品不僅色彩明亮豔麗,以具象方式佈滿整個畫面,還有色調漸暗、圖案變深的近期作品,趨向將
抽象與具象相互交織。通過藝術家和嘉的成長時間軸,他的作品呈現出人到中年時內心情感越發深刻
且內斂的變化,逐漸感知思維的層層進展。和嘉認為繪畫的藝術語言與精神核心及展現方式息息相關,
也與當下科技的發展變化相關。他不斷嘗試新的方式和材料,跨界實驗,力求在藝術上實現新的突破。
本次展覽由兩個系列的作品組成:「酸性量子」和「嬗變量子」。通過這些作品,和嘉試圖傳達視覺藝
術與知識一樣,總是處於不穩定的邊緣。就像量子世界一樣,物質不是由物質組成,現實只是可能性的
存在,無形的實體總是在確定與不確定之間搖擺。網絡感知和電子預知改變了感官的比例,一種新的
現實正在形成,融合的現實從技術和意識狀態的變異中成為「虛擬知覺、賽博知覺、超知覺」的「混合
體」。
「量子」個展將為觀眾提供一個反思當代社會和科技發展對我們認知和感知方式的影響的機會。通過
和嘉的作品,我們可以思考現實與虛擬之間的界限模糊,以及科技與人性之間的關係。展覽旨在啟發
觀眾對於藝術和科技交匯處的思考,並進一步探索視覺藝術的可能性。
