Where does the name They come?
Personal and artists always like to say that I and we, people rarely go to care for others, care about them. It is considered as selfish personality and personal values. But this is not true, we and they are the same, they also have their personality and values. As artists we need to show objective value, the performance of their inner world. If our work shows them and do our own performance. If we just fascinated by the performance of our own, well never find yourself.
Paint is usually a very individualistic discipline. How you came to work on it together?
Paint is usually a very individualistic discipline.but We like the challenge, this contradiction, and we put a different personality and interests into the screen, which makes the screen showing the conflict and unity of subjective and objective convergence. We will first discuss what a basic platform, such as a room or an island, and then we will be free to draw on the screen the content of their own interest, but we can not destroy and interfere with each others paintings, the final screen showing a singular freedom and conflict. This allows us the perspective of those who must stand to watch his own subjective ideas. This is one reason why they are called.
What characteristics of your generation are present in your paintings?
Our generation is very anxious and vulnerable, we are very realistic, but we lack the vision and poetic, in addition to money and sex, we do not have true inner freedom. For the future, we did not expect, so we can only sink in reality. We do not have true love and friendship, so we are only familiar stranger. We looked at each other, I hope they help us, but we do not intend to pay our own strength and love, we only take, but we do not pay. We do not have faith, we only believe in myself. This self-confidence is very fragile. Love and trust is a luxury, but also beautiful but fragile. These feelings are in our paintings inside.
In your paintings there is a thin line between reality and fiction Whats real and whats fiction in each?
We believe that reality itself is unreal, the reality is that we live in fiction. Full of lies and the harsh reality of our lives and our world, so we often can not distinguish reality and fiction. Cruelty is true beauty is fiction. Relative to the real world, the absurdity and hypocrisy, and perhaps the dream is real. We are being deceived and fooled generation, our values confusion, we can not distinguish between beauty and ugliness of human nature. We often do not believe that even the most simple love. So we can only rely on one horizon to distinguish between reality and fiction.
What about the surrealism? Many of your paintings show islands that would be very difficult to reach alone... if not impossible.
Our paintings are not surrealism, she may be the reality, perhaps a dream, perhaps fiction, but not surrealism. Because we draw is true reality and the inner world. Our paintings appear many islands, these islands are our hearts and their hearts, everyones heart is an island, very remote, difficult arrived. Our hearts like these islands remain the same distance, looked at each other, very close but never reach. We each spoke in their own words, but never really communicate. Our two artists work, like silos and islands of the dialogue.
The paintings convey very calm, but also very lonely. Do you believe that loneliness is a problem in our society today?
Loneliness is todays social problem in the world. However, it is human problems alone. Between people, between man and machine, between religion and science, between races, between countries, between classes, between men and women full of doubt and distrust, hostility and exclusivity became a self-protection. Sometimes we do not even believe in themselves. Distraction from this fear and loneliness, we need a lot of love and substance, but when we found that these substances is likely to disappear, love is cheap, we will fall into a deeper sense of loneliness.
There are several contrasts in your work, reality / fiction, peace / solitude, beauty / distress. What do you think of this?
This contrast is very natural. First of all, the world is full of contrasts and a sense of absurdity. The subjective and the objective world can never reach unity. Humans and nature can not always harmonious. Civilization and history is sometimes vague and contradictory. As an artist, we want to express the true knowledge can only be subjective, even extreme ideology and personality style. We passed two artists working together this way, reaching contradiction and unity. We reinforce this contrast, both conversion and integration of such a contrast. This is a difficult task, but also a challenge, but also become our features and concepts.
What about the formats you used, the centered horizon line and the thoroughness with which you treat each of your paintings?
We use an island as a base, as we have in the past now use a window of the house, as you can see at the following URL past our work. We are interested in creating a container or a stage director of theater on this platform and dreams.
How your lives and experiences are manifested in your paintings?
Yes, you are a very good question! Lives and experiences of works of art is bound to become the basis and nutrition. Chinese have a saying: Art comes from life, but more than life. However, we feel that art has less than life. We always want to find life through artistic outlet. Because lifes emptiness and meaningless, we must rely on the salvation of souls with the art, the art of living and experience are vegetarian. But we found that art has affected lives. When you think art can end our emptiness, you can only keep a new creation. Once you stop, and even greater and far-reaching will immediately fill your emptiness. This is a bit like sex, we can never truly satisfied, but you can enjoy a short course of excitement。Sex is the life of raw power, art and life and the creation of raw power. Although our lives are always very frivolous and our personal experience is always full of fallacies and limitations. But this is life detail and true. Our art is to behave better than the life or worse than life spectacle. Whether beautiful or ugly, happy or loneliness, emptiness, or meet, are the essence of life. Life is ultimately a tragedy, because everyone is dying. And everyone is not he or she wants everything. The world is not fair, rich and poor, beautiful and ugly, healthy and unhealthy. We can not choose our destiny and birth.But there is one thing the world is only fair that everyone will die. Only in God, Allah, Buddha in front of everyone is equal.
