Suyi Xu


My paintings are contemplations on space, interiors, and architecture that morphs into meditations on light and color fields. By interjecting historical references with counterfactual narratives, I address the idealism and authorship of art historical narratives. By manipulating perspective, framing, and chromatic choices, I aim to merge subject matter with a formal consciousness and resolve the tension between two-dimensionality and illusions. My subjects are responses to the spiritual crisis of contemporary existence, and my method a visceral engagement with the painting medium driven by the idea of a sacred intent.
