Chinese ink and acrylic on Canson

布面丙烯一幅  acrylic on canvas (20×20cm)


This group of paintings is created by Mountain River Jump! Huang He's works are inspired from a particular ink-painting method, which is believed to have originated in the Tang Dynasty, named Ink Pool(墨池法). By using paper to record the instantaneous moments of the flowing ink, she tries to evoke free association in the viewers' mind and assumes the patterns of the ink flows can tell the spiritual characteristics of human beings. Huang Shan depicts human's imagination towards the sun and the moon.

Mountain River Jump! is an artist duo founded in 2016 by twin sisters Huang Shan and Huang He, who were born in 1985. The duo has a variety of creative formats in art, often applying "divination consulting" as a performance to examine the potential of such art medium, and to interact with the audience at the intrinsic level. With their studies into Oriental mysticism and folklore, the artists pry open various topics of our contemporary society. They pay attention to the embodiment of mythological clues in a daily context, attempting to carry out "psychoanalysis" of the reality, and reflecting on the materialist culture within modern China and its psychological status. Huang Shan and Huang He presently work and live in Foshan, Guangdong.
