Li Shurui

Exhibition Poster of ARTIFICAL EMOTIONS at Carl Kostyál

The study of light and color and their cultural connotations constitute the core of Li Shurui’s (b.1981, Chongqing) artistic practice. The artist is convinced that the use of light and color can embody, record, and shape individuals’ needs and spirituality in different cultures and times, which is also related to their collective ideology in a broader sense. In recent years, the artist has developed a more comprehensive system of work methods. Drawing from her life experiences, Li Shurui explores the boundaries of the painted medium, as well as the functional, social and political nature of light and color through a highly personal approach and its extended practice.
