Committed is a solo exhibition of the French artist Vincent Cazeneuve/Wensen Qi presented by Sin Sin Fine Art and Le French May. His last researches about bodiless lacquer reconnected him with this ancient technique and enabled the artist to explore applying lacquer on wood, fibers, or fabrics. His creations connect the audience to the primitive sensation of the natural beauty.
Born in Toulouse in 1977, Cazeneuve moved to Chongqing, Toulouse’s sister city, in 2007 where he opened his own studio. Cazeneuve has also been exhibiting in and touring China, France, Japan and Thailand as a performance and installation artist. His encountered lacquer during his first trip to China in which he had an apprenticeship in the studio of a Chongqing master.
Lacquer painting requires patience and fortitude as the processes of embedding, scattering, rubbing and layering require numerous repetitions. His creation stems from the idea that the artist’s poetic sensations are embodied in the manual repetitions.
