In the era of the pandemic, the world eagerly longs for the "light" could enter people's lives. Even in the face of devastation and death, human’s aptitude to convey the message of "light of humanity" with subtle, sincere and poetic artistic expression will not be hindered. For the “light” in art, it has long been a vital element for painters to comprehend and interpret both the real and spiritual world. Different methods of color and light examinations have contributed to the painting, reaching a sophistication — the boundlessness and all-embracing. “Light” is now a symbol of the essence of painting, but who knows what variation will it present in the future? Figurative art that pays attention to the elements of design and colors; impressionism innovatively explores light and color; cubism deconstructs but recreates the beauty of space and objects; abstract art that uses the most primitive artistic language to speak for one’s spiritual world. The artists specializing in the art styles respectively have played their part in reflecting the French history, heritage, culture, and their personal experiences and dreams, or maybe the complex mixture of all on their artworks. In “The Path of Light”, we are bringing their varied works, which show how the art flourishing country has cultivated the artistic refinement of its people and dwellers, hoping to explore the inheritance of the artistic spirit of creation of the France-based artists.
