About the Artist

Fu Wenjun (Chinese: 링匡에; pinyin: Fù Wénjùn, born 1955), graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, is a freelance artist and photographer. He is a member of the China Photographers Association and of the Professional Photographer Association of America. His works have been exhibited in Grand Palais des Champs-Elysées in Paris, Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, and Old Summer Palace in Beijing.

The work Illusory Metamorphoses combines the models of the X-ray human skeleton with the Dazu Grottoes; here the artist Fu Wenjun intend to explore the faith, as well as the related concepts of life and death, existence and illusion, present and future.

The use of the Rongchang grass cloth as a photographic media is an artistic experiment on the contemporary transformation of the intangible culture. The Rongchang grass cloth has existed in China for thousands of years, but now is disappearing. Either under the protection of the museums or thanks to the commercial exploitation, anyway the grass cloth is unlikely to regain its usefulness, so it’s going straight away from the public. The artist wishes to rebuild its relationship with the public in an artistic way, making it lasting around us.
