Materials and the relations formed between objects are the key to understanding Luo’s conceptual inquiries. In addition to surface and forms, the artist considers intently the innate capacity a material possesses in maintaining and transferring energy. He manipulates materials and objects almost objectively – no hierarchical differentiation is made to the treatment of a subject in relation to another. This unbiased approach allows room for diverse meanings to flow and accumulate, creating a new collective whole.
