Art Plural Gallery is pleased to announce Excess, the joint exhibition of Chinese artist Fu Lei and American artist Dane Patterson at Third Floor - Art Plural Gallery.

Fu Lei and Dane Patterson’s imaginary worlds both unfold through seething mosaics of animals, human beings and objects in disarray. Paper is saturated with elements of all kinds from plates to clothes, jellyfishes to ladybirds, dialoguing without hierarchy or distinction. Abundance triggers a poetic overflow sometimes slipping away from the frame as if pointing out boarders of another reality

About the Artists

Fu Lei, born in Beijing in 1958, celebrates the excess of sensuality and desire conveyed through massive bodies’ volumes and flesh disproportions. Picturing unusual scenes echoing classical Greek orgiastic feasts, Fu Lei sets lust as a value in a world emphasizing the ambiguousness of human nature.

These intimate visions present an interesting dialogue with Dane Patterson’s interior scenes.

Dane Patterson, born in 1978 in Indiana, features familiar people and objects displaced from their usual context. Absurd or unreal scenes reveal the fragile balance of so-called routine. Dane Patterson’s excessive disorder undermines fixed and limiting definitions.
