Cai Yi Xiu

China, 1987



In 2008, Cai Yi Xiu became an apprentice of Su Xiaobai, a noted chinese lacquer painting artist in the world. 

To Cai Yi Xiu, art is the playground of solitary. His works act as the bridge between him and the physical world. As his new project, Cai Yi Xiu often falls into a status, of which he feels the nature within and self without. Artist throw himself into the paintings with iterative lacquer layers, through the trace of time, the medium develops into the superimposed image of substance and self. 


At first glance, the works of Cai Yi Xiu seem to ignore formalism in many ways. His works are not about expression or abstraction. The artist ignores the essence of time and the dedication of how the universe converges. He left all the materiality behind, such as tone, temperament, composition, only to focus on perception and immersion of the richness in his manifesto on spatial. Through his artwork, viewers can be spiritually redeemed.
