TAIPEI (The China Post) — Everyone needs to cheer up these days amid the pandemic.
Jimmy Liao’s new exhibition “Murmurs in the Studio,” for instance, is a solid remedy for this issue from now until March 31 at Eslite Gallery in Taipei.
More than 90 pieces of works are on display, including some paintings revealed for the first time and a series created during the SARS outbreak called “Thank You, Furry Bunny, for a Wonderful Afternoon.”
The furry bunny series depicts those who escaped from an abandoned city swallowed by the plague.
Years later, a little girl, who has become an old lady, is reunited with her furry bunny in the deserted zoo.
The furry bunny wakes up the sleeping little girl in the old lady’s heart, experiencing a charming sweet dream.
What’s more? The exhibition features the monochromatic black-and-white paintings created with Sharpie markers, acrylics and watercolors.
There is no direct reference to death or loss in the picture, but the emotional expressions are portrayed through the delicate arrangement of scenes.
