Kai and Sunny "My Eye on You" @ Colette, Paris

Aug 29, 2016 - Sep 24, 2016Colette, Paris

My Eye On You is a series of new works by the UK based artist duo Kai & Sunny at Colette in Paris. Kai & Sunny take inspiration from the natural world and the patterns and forms it manifests. The works on paper measure approximately a meter in both width and height, and are created using coloured archival ballpoint pens, building up images of dizzying, geometric complexity out of single lines.

In both form and theme ‘Time’ is in the foundation of each image. The original pieces represent the shifting flow of time. The slow methodic process of building thin line upon thin line in colour creates a tension inside the compositions. The works are intense and powerful but the delicate nature of the lines creates a fragility, as if the structure would collapse if one were taken away. The new works show magnified and stylized drawings of natural occurrences featuring continuous tidal-like waves and intense sun bursts.
