New Blood Art Statement

Royal College of Art's Danbin Cao's work seems to channel something of Seurat's iconic painting - Bathers at Asnières. Using an innovative, monochromatic technique - incorporating drawing with thread - Cao creates evocative shadow play. 

Danbin Cao (b. 1995, Hangzhou, China) is a Chinese artist living and working in both London and Hangzhou. Danbin finished her BA in oil painting and graduated from the China Academy of Art in 2017. In 2018 she enrolled at the Royal College of Art to continuing her art training as a printmaker. Danbin’s work consists primarily of paintings, prints, and installations. Her practice combines various materials and methods revolving around the boundary between illusion and reality. She uses chaotic lines to create unclear images, allowing her to confront the controllability and uncontrollability of material. Danbin’s work often employs multiple forms of blurry figures organized together in random strokes. She tries to convey a sense of unclear boundary with the hazy feeling revealed by the image and its materials. Her use of fragile materials, as well as her installation techniques, are intended to blur both the definition of visual elements and the boundaries between varying emotional states.
