“Chinese notion of classic landscape paintings provide a sense of truth as unfixed and dynamic. My production of a visual artwork is guided by a moving balance between my mental memories and my body memories; it enables me to open up to truths that are not fixed and static. Rather, they’re dynamic like the flux of Nature itself.”
Le Guo (b. 1964 in China) is a well-respected artist with international achievements. He has been invited to deliver lectures at The British Museum, Sotheby’s Institute of Art and Xi’An University, among different venues. Le Guo’s paintings present intense visions of colour, organic forms and undefined shapes. His inner abstract landscapes bear influences from both Western Expressionism and Surrealism, as well as from Chinese philosophies and classical art. They are triggered by a continuous dialogue between physical and emotional, conscious and unconscious, internal and external.
