Estyle Art Gallery｜Yu Sheng Ruei
“Micro” realism artist Yu Sheng-Ruei, who graduated from National Taiwan Normal University, began his “Collection Illuminating” in 2015. The related works are formed to be the important contents for his master thesis, the following series had also won him the "The Grand View Newcomer Award". Under the blessing, the art critics sustain to observe a detailed and in-depth study of Yu Sheng-Ruei's creation. Multi-criticisms focused on discussing the changes in Yu’s creative process, divided by the symbol of image elements, the distribution of the composition, the concepts of “reality” versus “realism”, “translating” versus “reinterpretation” showing the diversity in Yu's works. Through the “Collection Illuminating” let us explore how two-dimensional painting can express light, illuminate space, and symbolic concepts. It can be described as a bold attempt to transform the sculpture into plane, presenting an illusory where the true lies. Yu tries to take variety characters with the connection of the light and shade to express the complicated life experience which past and present intertwined in his own life. The map of the living links becomes a self-painting image that speaks for the heart and responds to the outside world. Just like the loop effect which metal and glass may produce.
