zhou fan 15 402x400 Zhou FanZhou Fan, Chinese artist selected as one of the 25 Emerging Chinese artists by international art critics, has based his “Love of Jellyfish” paintings on a dream he had as a child of jellyfish floating in the sky. Some of them landed and resembled mushrooms upon their landing. One of them depicts a boy crying because he keeps sad things in him that he refuses to really acknowledge.

Zhou’s use of colour is what really impacts me about these paintings (besides, of course, the floating jellyfish faces.) Many of the piled up jellyfish remind me of ice cream cones, which really distracts me from studying the actual paintings.

I’m partial to painting 15. The mask face person is striking to me while the sky view of the jellyfish draws my eye up. The use of black caught my eye, because red is such a predominant colour in the other paintings. Though it is kind of frightening to look at, because the jellyfish seem to be pulling this mask face person up into the sky by his/her braids, it’s got this serenity too it that is (but then again, isn’t completely) unexpected. Having been to the zoo in my past, I know that the movement of jellyfish is calming and quiet to watch.

I wonder if Zhou’s statement hadn’t described some of the meaning behind all these paintings what I would’ve decided it was (I can’t even begin to imagine what I would’ve come up with.) What would you have come up with?
