Tang Contemporary Art, Hong Kong, China - 25 February – 18 March 2016
The exhibition featured works of acrylic on canvas and mixed media from the artist’s studio based on his ongoing series titled Unfinished and In Ambiguous Sight. In Ambiguous Sight, the oeuvre of his work is full of edges and moulded forms, similar to the theories of the ‘vague’ and ‘ambiguous’ in New Criticism which addresses the significance of multiplicity and emotion in art. Striking with clarity, the works challenge the viewer’s perception to enhance spatial cognition. While the unfinished home is the most basic, unadorned existence, it is perfectly suited to Cai Lei’s use for presenting spatial issues.
