Lives and Works: Singapore
Trained in printmaking, Ruixiang constantly challenges the notion of traditional printmaking with his innovative techniques and in pushing the limits of the materials that he works with.
Ruixiang’s works go beyond the two-dimensional expression of ink on paper as is typical of traditional printmaking. His works portray a sense of three dimensionality in his assemblage of cutouts and layering of the printed images. This method of composing and juxtaposition of the contents, motifs, and texts imbue Ruixiang’s works with a sense of hierarchy, movement and spatiality. Shadows forming along the boundaries of the cutout images blur the outlines and their relationships with the adjacent objects, enhancing the sense of three- dimensionality. This interplay of reimaging three-dimensionality into two and back into three again is a quality that the artist finds conceptually intriguing. To add a sense of touch, the artist also added in hand painted strokes of colors.
Lee Ruixiang graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art Singapore with a Diploma in Fine Art (Printmaking) in 2012. While he has exhibited extensively worldwide in group exhibitions and art fairs since 2011, the exhibition at Art Projects Gallery will be his debut solo exhibition.
