Scope and Content

Exhibition catalogue of Guo Wei and Guo Jin at Goedhuis Contemporary in New York in 2002.

Children have a long tradition as subjects in Chinese art. Their presence in traditional painting and folk art marked them as symbols of good fortune, prosperity, and fecundity. Guo Wei and Guo Jin's paintings may be seen as reflections of the new Chinese familial identity. The suggestion of a rich interior life and a certain pyschological ambivalence stands in stark contrast to the robust, glossy children of the Mao area. Guo Wei and Guo Jin see in children a mirror of inner goodness and innocence, whose playful lives cannot yet be quite detached from the isolation and social crises their parents have experienced in the rapidly changing world of contemporary China.
