Renowned sculptor Chen Jinqing ‘True-self Over the Vast Sea Solo Exhibition’ at YANG GALLERY • Beijing 798.

While common, Chen Jinqing has successfully explored the innermost fantasy of a child with his unique creation of children subjects. The subject is set with the background of lotus seeds and lotus pods nestling to form the various structures in the vast free sky of floating clouds. The combination of these elements is not only soothing in form and color, it has presented the essence of the culture from where the artist comes from. In the Chinese tradition, Lotus seeds symbolize continuity of generation. These lotus seeds, together with the traditionally dressed kids studying and playing, emphasize the passion of life. While the landscape is unbound and full of uncertainty, lotus pods symbolize the comfort of the motherland which constantly provides shelter and protection to these “Child Fairies”. As a result, Chen Jinqing creates a “Castle in the Sky” that is heartwarming and captivating at the same time. Undoubtedly, his artworks will continue to put a smile on your face and even in your heart bringing back one’s lost memory of a carefree childhood.
