Xue Mu

By making use of elliptical tactics and ambiguous aesthetics, Xue Mu creates work while avoiding the conventional perception of value imposed by the modern world. Her work consists of paintings, objects, photographs and large-scale drawings.
Through an almost synaesthetic approach – inspired by various music genres and the digestion of media information as seen from multiple angles – Mu has developed a process of mark-making that results in environments and drawings. In the drawings, depth and complexity are depicted in order to visually allude to the perhaps unrepresentable structure of thought and expended potentiality.
