About Chen Wenyuan
Chen Wenyuan born 1986 in Shandong. Graduated B.A. (Hons) and Masters from the Guangzhou Academy of Chinese Painting. She has exhibited in many galleries – Guangzhou Art Museum, USA – Los Angeles Convention Centre, Chongqing Art Museum, Creative Art Space, Shanghai, Seoul, Korea. Her work relates to people, "Shame" exhibits a morbid sense and she tries to show in today's society the destruction of human beings on both physical and psychological level. This person as a member of the world is most complex - he is the subject of society, his body is on the peripheral, his every movement is affected by the intervention of society and also the community. This is an abstract relationship and it gets digested, destroyed and dilapidated beyond recognition. We turn a blind eye to many of these fragments and this most revealing truth. Her work explores these uneasy situations - crippled limbs revealed morbid, expressionless trace of frustration, fear and anxiety. These portraits’ implies pathological features for contemporary people and their morbid personality will not be easily excavated in reality but remain hidden in the depths of their human spirit. Works like a man trying to pass some kind of religious devotion to reach for his own salvation.
