Art Projects Gallery is delighted to present “She Looks Blue”, a solo exhibition by Cold Ears Factory. Cold Ears Factory is a collaborative studio formed by Hong Kong artists Eastman Cheng and Joey Leung. Inspired by Chinese blue and white porcelain art that feature intricate floral patterns, this series of work creates a three-dimensional version of the “blue and white” motif, featuring fun and quirky sculptures that reflect nature, people and life, injected with the artists’ sense of humor and philosophical narratives.

Artist’s Statement
In traditional Chinese blue and white porcelain art, floral motifs in blue tones permanently glazed into ceramics wares portray a sense of everlasting elegance. However, imagine if a flower were to really turn blue, it must be feeling a little giddy, its legs or rather, stalk, may be turning a little soft, unable to stand upright. This playful thought inspired Cold Ears Factory to come up with their latest solo exhibition titled “She Looks Blue”.

Drawings inspiration from the forms and characteristics of various floral species and together with the artist duo’s fertile imaginations, Cold Ears Factory created a series of “blue and white” sculptures using a combination of medium that include fabrics in various hues of blue, handcrafted ceramics clay and other materials. In the exhibition, each sculpture is placed together against the particular flower species that had influenced the piece, revealing to the viewers the metaphorical connections that the artists had in mind and also allow the space for new meanings to be created in the viewers’ minds. Cold Ears Factory’s mixed media sculptures set the “blue and white” aesthetics in a refreshing new light, offering reinterpretations of the genre in a philosophical and contemporary context.
