Pei Yongmei

Pei Yongmei is one of the most outstanding emerging artists. She is focused on the reflections on and practice in painting in the context of contemporary art and its concepts, and deeply concerned with the hybrid state of globalised economy, culture and life. Her exhibited work Chocolate uncovers the special kind of modernity engendered by the overlapping of many cultures in the global financial crisis. The perspective of the work has cut into a section of contemporary urban culture and traversed the on-going spectacles under the lights that reflect the worlds happenstances. On a different sphere it gets to imagine and outline the people trapped in their entranced, crazy world. The pleasure, desire, anxiety and fear that permeate the picture are intertwined. Under the blinding neon lights, they are not lost. They are just exhausted yet never tired of examining the self among the unbreakable spells. The entire series leads one to a world of highly ritualistic aura and mirror images, and a process of pushing anonymous frissons to an unpredictable state in which what is left is losing hold and picking up againand restarting C the irreplicable and replicable fantastic futures.
