Guang Jun's August is on show at the Art Museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. The exhibition gives a deliberate impression of being unfinished. CHINA DAILY

"It is hard to describe what is going on; the future is unpredictable; let life unfold as it will," Guang writes in the preface of the exhibition.

Running through until Dec 17, there was no opening ceremony. It's Guang's hope that visitors to the exhibition being held at the school where he was trained, taught, and worked for decades, will feel relaxed and curious, as if they are entering his studio, but also feel his seriousness and commitment to art.

Graduating from CAFA's affiliated high school and the academy's printmaking department, Guang has been an artist since 1959. The work on show reveals an intriguing world in which he enjoys art by seeking breakthroughs in style, medium and ways of presentation, while simultaneously seeking a carefree state of life.

His simple compositions, smooth lines and smart color arrangements together result in a sophisticated style that demonstrates a lifelong accumulation of artistry and wisdom.
