Dahlias and Small Copper (Butterfly) is one of Shizico’s latest projects, inspired by Japanese woodblock Print and a nod to the visual language of calligraphy.
The series is a part of “Sunlit Series", an artistic exploration with and around the colour of yellow.
In this new Series, shizico Yi adds the primary colours into Sunlit project, explore the tension and interplay between the chosen two primary colours in a painting.
Each painting was created in a restrict colour palette allowing the depth and shade of each colour to speak like the interplay of musical notes in a duet melody.
Like "Sunlit Series" all paintings take shape en plein air, a deliberate departure from the studio settings as she wants to immerse within the very spaces She portrays. So She is not just an observer but also an active participant in the essence of the moment.
Visually, these paintings are playgrounds for her practise of variety of mediums; gold leaf and silver gilding in her brushstrokes, elevating each stroke to luminous detail. The interplay of these contrasting elements add yet another layer of tactile fascination.
These new series are the breath-taking testimonies to the profound connection between the materials, the subject she depicts and the artist herself.
Sunlit Series nestles within Shizico’s "Golden Period," a profound exploration centred around the captivating hue of yellow. It is a colour she believes having the healing power for those afflicted by grief.
