8 November - 13 December 2014

ShanghART Gallery is please to present the second exhibition in the Semi-automatic Mode series, the canvas works from artist Han Feng, Hu Liu and Zhao Yang will be displayed. The exhibition will last till 14th December.

Semi-automatic Mode is a random choice made from accident and causality, contradiction and complement. In the state of semi-conscious, examing the fast and efficient developing method and progress from distance, refuse to be superficial. After the first exhibition of “Semi-automatic Mode”, ShanghART Beijing space is now on the second round of this program.

The exhibition will focus on canvas works. Similar alignment and material provide different feelings and distributes different qualities, which bring about a very different texture. The tension formed by deviation will aggregate and ferment in the exhibition constantly. It’s surprising that all of that become logical under the semi-automatic mode.
