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 â€œportraitsâ€ of various everyday objects as an individual response to social change. When Mao makes a â€œportraitâ€ of something, he does not paint a still life, but, to borrow a Japanese expression, â€œtells a story of that objectâ€. This is not only the story of an everyday object, but is also Maoâ€™s story, or even the story of society. These objects are found both in society and among personal possessions. Therefore, we often discover Maoâ€™s shadow among his multitude of â€œobjectsâ€. To some degree, Maoâ€™s portraits of chairs, scissors, or bicycles are self-portraits, as well. - The various â€œobjectsâ€ have become Maoâ€™s major themes during different periods. For example, his early themes were â€œred earthâ€ and â€œgreen tree branchesâ€. Themes such as â€œchairsâ€ (Parents), â€œscissorsâ€, â€œkeysâ€, â€œbicyclesâ€, â€œshoesâ€, and â€œbrocade flagsâ€ did not emerge until later. Maoâ€™s method of â€œtelling a story of the objectâ€ dates back to the â€œGui Mountain Series of Paintingsâ€; the â€œRed Physical Volumeâ€ and â€œPersonal Space Seriesâ€ of the 1980s; the â€œParents Seriesâ€ and â€œScissors Seriesâ€ of the 1990s; and the â€œGlory and What Is Past Seriesâ€, from 2000 to the present. The technique, â€œportraits of objectsâ€, expresses the artistâ€™s thoughts about society and the essence of existence.
