In Liang Yuanwei’s eponymous exhibition presented at Beijing Commune, she presents her latest artistic trajectory that she has been exploring since 2018. Throughout this journey, materiality and form have gone beyond color and structure, so that, the perceptions hidden within the painting itself could fully emerge. This exhibition reflects not simply how the artist investigates the civilized history and experiences contemporary discourses, but how she constantly positions herself in the relation to the former.
