Ye Yongqing – Mix Media Work

Hello all and a happy Saturday.This is a continuation of yesterday’s post and am glad to say I’ve kept one more promise to write today. So I’ll start writing now as I really have to go to the mall to get Ray and Roy (my twin children) some rab clothing as they are having a camp out tonight

This mix media work by Ye Yongqing was previously part of a set of installation mix-media works entitled “9 birdcages in winter”. They first made their debut at the 1st Shanghai Biennale and were considered an important milestone of Ye Yongqing’s creative processes. In them, the Chinese art critic, Li Xianting felt that Ye “has put fragments of his different temporal life experiences together on a single surface, evoking that state between dreaming and waking”.

Ye started creating paintings inspired by images of daily life like bird cages, automobiles, vintage photographs and caricatures in the 1990’s on his way back from his travels from USA and Europe.

Treating his paintings, which were like  graffiti like scribbles, like a blog, Ye Yongqing recorded random thoughts and expression free of any regionalism, but yet his mix media works with the bird cage as a theme seemed to show restraint that the he felt and the loss of freedom that he experienced.
