about this work
"About art, a lot of people ask: 'What are you trying to express?  What do you want to say?'  I think of all the media, painting is a very traditional one; the language in itself already expresses what the work wishes to express; it could be redundant or difficult for me to explain my works in concrete words. The cluttered tomb like cement platform, the luxuriant foliage and her half bust posture mimics ordinary plaster sculptures; yet, she has presented her heart in her own hand to show her luscious flesh and soul. All I wanted to say is included in the title of the painting: See for yourself. "
(Chen Fei)
