Art is “the practice of ideas”, which is to organize those essentially untidy thoughts stored in the brain into ideas and elevate the ideas to a higher dimension that transcends bodies to create art.
Everything we receive is constructed through information. Inspired by the lyric of a nursery rhyme, Yibi Yaya Stroke Over Stroke implies that the construction of information in childhood has gradually shifted from unconditional absorption to consciously filtering. We gain a large amount of information while providing various messages to others; which indicates that during “the practice of ideas,”– when painting freely and loosely, the four graphic artists are arbitrarily cutting themselves from their animas and staying connected simultaneously.
In the era that information expanses rapidly, the anxiety of self-positioning rages. Thus, how can artists re-identify themselves while retaining their ideology after thinking outside the box of information as well as re-examining their own “reality” have become a necessary process.
As far as we can see, the information that the social system has presented intrudes inexorably. Perhaps the so-called “reality" has disappeared since consciousness exists. Nowadays, when the artists review their shelters, instead of searching for the “reality,” to identify with themselves and coexist calmly with the world becomes their hearts’ desire.
