Artwork Appreciation
Artist CHEN Yan-Ru’s work conveys the tranquility of extreme silence. He is good at taking images such as mountains, sky, land, and sea as the reflection of his mental sorrowful landscape. In his work Chinampas, there are several floating islands piled up by spots below the starry night sky. Between islands is the silently flowing river or sea. These are artificial islands imagined by the artist. The artist composes the levels of the image with abundant and changeable colors and makes the work look like a tranquil landscape painting and an abstract painting with splendid colors. CHEN Yan-Ru’s brush can turn the concrete landscape into abstract geometric symbols. Each stroke and color block implies the childhood memory and nostalgia in his mind. It is also what his mental emotions depend on.
