Grounded (1977) (2 of 2)


Looking at old photographs, my mother sighed deeply thinking about the differences between her life in the city now and in the countryside during her teenage years. With this painting, I imagined this period of her life, even though I was not there. I painted as I listened to my mother’s description of her life - i.e. appearance, daily routines, environment - back in her hometown Chongming, which used to be an undeveloped small island. The sweeping brush strokes represent the fleeting impression of memory and imagination.
