More About this Item


Description: Still Life 2
2003
80 x 60 cm
Oil on canvas
Artist or Maker: CHEN qiuchi (Chinese, b. 1959)
Literature: While Chen Qiuchi's paintings definitely share some similar qualities and themes with other cynical realists, his concern and focus are beyond the usual subjects of his contemporaries. He draws from both Chinese and Western symbols, blending surrealism and pop elements in his creations, producing a unique vision that is both universal and diversified.Chen's interest lays in issues that are connected to the rapid development of modern technologies; and modernity's subsequent social changes are a recurring theme in Chen's intriguing and singular body of work. Chen finds that our era of high technology is one of progress, but it is also one of environmental and social crises. Much of Chen's work visually focuses on the contours of the human head to reflect the existential thought process that drives the day-to-day that makes up our world. Chen does this by moving beyond the ebullient and larger-than-life faces evident in the Chinese modern--from political art of the mid-century to contemporary Chinese art. He conceives caricatures in multiple forms, compounding the complexity and frustration of today's vibrant milieu.
