A group of recreationers floats by in fuzzy detail. The expressions on their faces aren't clear, but the lift of their cheeks and the shape of their eyes suggests a carefree abandon to their leisure. Wang Chunli creates the impression of their shapes through fields of pastels, subdued colors juxtaposed to each other in a quiet evocation of the jubilee in the original. Wang Chunli uses both digital and painting techniques to manipulate original source images into their final versions, a mediation that inserts elements of time, texture, and emotion into images even as it strips away their specificity.

A word from The Artist

The logicality and visual realism of the image itself have always held my concern. Many images we see, through continuous replication, have been losing such realistic effects, till the comprehensibility of the original image has eventually faded or been hidden.

Through superimposition of the image with the camera and computer monitor, a drastic visual gap has been identified between the original image and the processed one. To capture such visual contrast and have it presented via paintings on canvas or the profiles of piled up paper sheets mark the main visual characteristic of my works.

Painting is a means for me to retrospect and reconstruct the image that has been dissimilated by camera and computer monitor. The final images look like visions diluted through the course of time, which can only be interpreted and comprehended by the trail of blurry reality and a full imagination, while interestingly enough, such images that strongly embody the trace of time, bears no relevance with time itself, and is entirely compounded by a mechanical reproduction.
