A-SUN WU

1 july 2009—11 august 2009
At the exhibition there are shown the paintings of the last, “red-black-white” period of the artist’s creation. Its source is the memories of his childhood, that he spent among the mountains together with the children of the taya-people, and the impressions of the travel to asmat- and dani-people in New Guinea. The painter found out the coincidence of the colors and their meanings for nationalities of South Oceania and Taiwan. Along with the paintings at the exposition there is presented the sculpture of A-Sun Wu, that was created under the influence of the African art; some objects are made from the secondary material resources, that are transformed with the help of different technologies. The painter uses the color code, that was typical for the primitive tribes: red is life, black is power and white is peace. The objects that are requalified in such way “get the soul” because of similarity to the animals.
