Don Gallery West Bund , 2879 Longteng Avenue
Qu Fengguo’s new solo exhibition ‘Midsummer’, his third at Don Gallery, presents the paintings that belong to the series “Four Seasons” composed between 2015 and 2017. “Four Seasons” by Qu Fengguo stems from a sense of aesthetic judgment analogous to “mono-no-aware”. It is the unconscious capture of impermanence and ultimate emotions brought by the seasons as a natural kind.
