Painting is both naming and result, painting is the purpose itself. Images and experiences are deconstructed and reorganized in the act of painting. The termination of the act of painting can be regarded as an expedient measure, constructing a reality that can be discussed and retaining an open space beyond the theme. Technology, psychology, theme, texture , materials and other aspects can be used as discussion topics. The viewpoint of "the medium is the concept" is rooted in the contemporary art scene. The conflict between media and media values is inevitable. Faced with the challenge, painting began to find a strategy to protect itself. Negotiations with other media and the participation of heterogeneous forms of presentation have allowed painting to give up part of its subject identity, but it is far from reaching expectations. demands. Painting inherently retains various traces of body intervention, as well as the rhetorical discourse and techniques of image reconstruction, and is one of the effective ways to practice imagination, criticism and creativity. The fourteen artists invited this time, their painting practice has created a multi-dimensional and personalized grammatical space, and their differentiated work direction confirms the vitality of painting itself and its open attitude to the future.
