Hangzhou-based artist Li Hui is best described as a poet that tell her stories with lenses and film – not pen and paper. Her work is a mesmerizing blend of optical illusions, deep emotion and intimacy, that somehow always feels further away the more you gander. A paradox. Her subjects are slices of everyday life, way beyond formal distinctions. The use of light is the most recognizable aspect in her work – it’s complementing, it’s storytelling, it’s beautiful.
Her work has been featured in many world wide publications, including our first publication “TOFU”. We are delighted to welcome her back, to display her work once again, at our online exhibitions.
