This App also contains reviews and interview articles from three world-famous critics and curators, in which Mao has made a vivid depiction of his artistic experience as well as featured interpretation of his own artistic creation and concept. This App presents photographs of Mao at his sole exhibition, at his studio as well as in life. Mao Xuhui's Artworks Show: - During his more than two decades of artistic production, he makes “portraits” of various everyday objects as an individual response to social change. When Mao makes a “portrait” of something, he does not paint a still life, but, to borrow a Japanese expression, “tells a story of that object”. This is not only the story of an everyday object, but is also Mao’s story, or even the story of society. These objects are found both in society and among personal possessions. Therefore, we often discover Mao’s shadow among his multitude of “objects”. To some degree, Mao’s portraits of chairs, scissors, or bicycles are self-portraits, as well. - The various “objects” have become Mao’s major themes during different periods. For example, his early themes were “red earth” and “green tree branches”. Themes such as “chairs” (Parents), “scissors”, “keys”, “bicycles”, “shoes”, and “brocade flags” did not emerge until later. Mao’s method of “telling a story of the object” dates back to the “Gui Mountain Series of Paintings”; the “Red Physical Volume” and “Personal Space Series” of the 1980s; the “Parents Series” and “Scissors Series” of the 1990s; and the “Glory and What Is Past Series”, from 2000 to the present. The technique, “portraits of objects”, expresses the artist’s thoughts about society and the essence of existence.
