“Effect #” series

oil on caves

2016-ongoing

"Effect #" is a series of oil painting on caves that was ordered on taobao.com. Those paintings was painted by a skilled painter from Da Fen Village in Shenzhen, China, a village famous for counterfeiting the world’s most famous oil paintings for example, the Mona Lisa. The content of the painting is a set of lighting effects that are used in Photoshop. Special effects, which are supposed to enhance the subject, have become more emphasized than the subject or content itself. The idea of computer-generated effects is to make an image look as real as possible, however having a person copy computer effects like a flesh printer sets a paradox for the original purpose of this effect. 

"特效#" 系列

布面油畫

2016至今

“特效“系列是淘寶網購訂製的布面油畫。由中國深圳大芬村繪製山寨名畫的高超技師臨摹藝術家用繪圖軟件製作的圖像而成。畫面是一組Photoshop常用的燈光筆刷特效,特效的願意是為了無限接近真實的效果,而今軟件特效被廣泛充斥在商業和公共圖像中幾乎取代了圖像本省的內容。這種獨一無二的人肉打印機非常獨特。由電腦製作的特效反過來被人工反向略帶笨拙的臨摹成為了與特效初衷背道而馳的悖論。
