Blueprint:Zhao Guanghui Solo Exhibition

Just like a gigantic creature from ancient times, Zhao Guang Hui refuses to evolve, and he grows in a wild style, it looked as if the "wild" runs within his vain, we can also see his rebellious nature towards the "rules". The growing experiences in Yunnan's jungle made his lives more special than the ordinary urban folks. Therefore, we can say that he is kind of like an endanger animal, thrilled, chaotic, mysterious and lost.
His newest work " The most beautiful and correct nature", use the realistic method to create an ultima blueprint of the fake nature, homogeny sand, square grass block, random but symmetry fences, manual-facture long grass, simulated trees and tree trunks, birds, ducks are all created and interfered and fixed manually with a sense order. The artist rip out the individual interest in his works, and tries to create an unnatural figure by using the scientific methods of duplication, and arrangement.
In today's world of "easy figuration", manual-facture sights are slowly erose our world's natural views, 60years ago, we are worshiping the blueprint of communism, but today we are constructing a brand new world that represents the perfect blueprint of our future, and it seems to be the ultima truth of idealism, while it became the castrated fluid for human to harm our nature.
However, towards the "blueprint"itself, we can discover a simple truth, that is from the logic point of view, the reason why idealism can never come true is probably because once it became a blueprint, it might just became an ultima goal that was ceased forever. In this case we should first denied the idea of blueprint from the prospectives of history.
