The Chinese artist Ma Qiusha studied Digital Media Arts at the CAFA in Beijing, and also studied Electronic Integrated Arts in the USA. She has at her disposal a wide range of differentiated pictorial media languages. Ma Qiusha’s most recent artwork – acquired by the Daimler Art Collection – appeals to personal memories and sensations. This explicitly includes the personal memories and sensations of the viewer. Even the title of the artwork – You (Kaleidoscope No. 2), 2013 – indicates its participation-related aspect. When one looks more closely, the subject matter of the artwork – a solidly linear, urban architecture that is reminiscent of Peter Halley’s paintings of abstract urban surfaces – becomes a surreal and dreamlike depiction. The artist is not concerned with real architectures; instead, her depictions are based upon indistinct memory images. To give form to these memory images, she works with reflective paper, which she cuts to size and sticks to a basic structure that is architectonic, and is painted in watercolors to create shimmering ‘window surfaces’. These window surfaces can be read as a lifeless, aesthetically perfected skin. One cannot imagine any human life existing behind this skin.
