Kai & Sunny, UK-based duo artists are uniquely distinguishable for their compositions of acrylic paintings and archival ballpoint pen works. In their new work, Shifting Times, their work show tidal-like waves and energetic sunbursts which represent environmental uncertainty but always hopeful of a brighter future through meaningful change. Shifting Times, at London’s StolenSpace Gallery, is their 5th solo show at the gallery.
Shifting Times embraces two concepts; flowing deconstructed landscapes portraying a serene isolation through introspection and sharp-edged geometrics exuding speed and energy.
These parallel narratives are characterized by the duo’s distinct line work. The process is a methodical building of thin intricate lines upon each other creating strength to the work indicating solidity in numbers. The result is powerful kinetic compositions that somehow remain delicate.
The works delve into the connection between color and shape using color shifts to create dynamic movement. The lines can change your perception of the shape while the foreground and background invite you to float in-between the two.
The tidal-like waves and energetic sunbursts represent environmental uncertainty but always hopeful of a brighter future through meaningful change.
The exhibition will run until 23 December.
