Artworks】░░Chen Ke░░ What first strikes those seeing Chen Ke’s works is probably the bright keynote red; they probably also notice the frank, bold strokes and configuration, as well as the leitmotif images redolent with nostalgia. “Chen Ke’s bright red paintings depict Utopian scenes from New China - born of revolution - in the early period of construction from the late 1950s to the early 1960s”. This positioning seems to represent a general impression of one type of viewer - but when you are closer to Chen Ke’s Red Road, some impressions become more real.

░​░Liu Aijing░░ Beijing is a symbolic city. Serialized dramas are filled with the Forbidden City, enclosing dark political intrigue, the rise and fall of dynasties and the succession of regimes, the alluring faces of beauties whose hearts conceal wicked intentions.... The rich history of the city is shrouded in a thick fog, and the greed and lust of so many have been buried by this city. Today, I work and live in this city. I visit the Palace Museum, climb the Great Wall, travel to the Summer Palace.... Tiananmen Square is surrounded by flowers, with red flags fluttering, as well as the power lines, warning signs, and McDonald’s ... the ancient monuments nearby open their gates to crowds coming from everywhere. This city is no longer just a symbol, but something real that exists beneath my feet. We flock here with our dreams from different places. Sweating in this city, we bury our youth, our loves, our ideals, and our memories here. (By Liu Aijing, Translated by Dr Bruce G. Doar)☜|

 

░​░Zheng Dongmei░░ “To see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.”The ceramic series of "Wild Flowers" are art works which grow as new elements could be added to any part of these works. The works are made of cooper wire, glass and ceramic beads, and focus on small wild flowers which we might so easily have neglected. They represent the process of handicraft, but possess unrestrained artistic creation. (By Zheng Dongmei)
