In woodworking, wedge is a commonly used temporary object to open gaps in materials, or to form the necessary space fill and strength reinforcement.

 

Yin Changzhi uses cloth and free combination of frame to manufacture and decompose into several bevels, trying to make up the new form and functional complement of the original painting plane system. The boarder of a painting is pulled in different warp / weft relations, widen or folded, producing more joints, tendons and skin. The process of building is a customization of the action as well as viewing. In this sense, the artist attempts to loosen the rigid relationship between the art work and the audience with a temporary action by reediting the conventional properties of painting. Eventually, the translucent color layer and frame attaching to the canvas become the inside and the reflection. They are continually corrected in the process of reviewing. The border is open again. Its material components construct a new base and structure after reassembling. The flexible plug-ins finally render the unfamiliar spatial hierarchy of painting and texture perception.

 

Yin Changzhi was born in China in 1984. Currently, he lives and works in Wuhu, China.
