The paintings on linen refer to Kao‘s search for a universe all his own. In his new series of work, Pantomimes, he turns literal piles of decaying fruit into delectable, painterly discs amidst a vibrant and ethereal landscape. Drawn from the aesthetic philosopher Nelson Goodman’s “Ways of Worldmaking”, Kao embraces this world-building philosophy in his work by making many imperfect versions of the true world he ultimately seeks.
