A motorcycle rearview mirror, weeds, swaying grass in the wind, the speed at which one falls in love, boxes, crates…… How do these “objects” transition into “evidence”? Especially those mundane objects. These “objects,” collected through “paintings,” serve as the background noise of life, softly lingering within FU Ning’s solo exhibition “Red Eyes when I miss you” at Hiro Hiro Art Space, from November 11, 2023, to December 17, 2023.

FU Ning employs a transformative approach to images, with the focus not on the photographic compositions produced by the artist herself but on the diverse life archives of others. In her paintings, depictions are not typically testimonials of History but rather reminiscent of unremarkable everyday scenes we encounter. Nevertheless, upon deeper inspection, we seem to be able to envision the person gazing at the gravel on the ground or the grass sprouting from the cracks, prompting us to wonder, “What kind of life is she living?”

Such production methods reflect contemporary experiences, where our lives can be constantly captured in images, even archived, and shaped ourselves on the Internet through social media uploads. The constructed appearance has already become a new reality, where all things are no longer influenced by the presence of matters.

In this exhibition, the artist FU Ning endeavors to shift the theme of her creations from the grand values of the era to the minute experiences of life. Through paintings, she reproduces images related to her romantic narratives, defining reproduction and depiction as a process of attributing meanings. The time spent “gazing” also provides a basis for the weight of these experiences. “Many times, I just want to use stories to revisit those images that allow me to savor the experiences. It’s fundamentally instinctive, but it seems that there is no other way to assign more value to the motivation behind this behavior,” said FU Ning.
