The monograph Gao Ludi includes works
from two solo exhibitions of the artist,
and the two exhibitions are presented in
a double-cover, reversal fashion.
The thematic colour of one is sapphire,
the other is space silver. Through the
binding a reader can get a good sense
of the overall style of the book. The
“fluorescent series” includes works
from 2013 to 2015, and is reproduced
in fluorescent printing ink, loyally
representing the texture of the works - colours concealed by a layer of light.

The “grey series” includes works from
the year of 2016, marking a major shift
in artistic direction - the light, in turn, is
covered by black, white and grey colours.
The band of the artist’s signature
fluorescent orange most evident in
design operates as a sharp beam of light
as one flips through the pages.
