Chasing Time

Chinese Contemporary Social Realism
Sculptures


My Creative Thinking

A concern for social reality has always been the starting point of my creation. There are beautiful things in life, however, most of the time I feel a kind of estrangement from social reality. Where is the authenticity of the world? In the news media? In the cyber world? In the city where I live, billboards have replaced the banners with political slogans from my childhood. People are running through the narrow streets between high-rise buildings and the sky has become a narrow slit of distant blue. The same as human beings, our land is distributed in a regular way. What's the price of civilization?

My artworks in 2010 have some changes when compared with my previous ones, but I still applied the same principle to them - developing a deeper understanding of social reality through questioning.

In my previous “Chasing” series, the dominant role is human beings, their convergent movements reflecting the tendency of Chinese society. But in my recent works, human beings are less dominant, despite their new formed relationship with the material world: they have become a derivative of symbols; people are derived from all kinds of symbols from the media. Those mobile phones, computers and billboards, gather with the signs and codes which come out from them, surrounding people and overwhelming them. People are like leaves flickering on a fictitious tree growing in the information society, they become far away from the real soil, i.e. the real world, and eventually they don’t know where they are.

The presentation methods of Contemporary Art are becoming more and more diverse.  Installations, photograph and multimedia etc. have provided more possibilities for making art. But my recent art works still remain in the form of sculpture and painting. It’s not only because these are the techniques I am familiar with, but also because I am aiming to reflect our modern society by using traditional art forms. From my point of view, insisting on traditional art forms is a kind of resistance to the industrialized society. With this honest thought, I slow down and pace myself to go back to the origin. It’s just my way returning to the earth.
