"A work, that of Wenjun Fu, that moves on different levels: the personal, intimate level, strictly close to the soul, to subjectivity, and to the collective." Multiple superimposed images imitate the layering of the input that sends the consciousness. The ancient tradition of Chinese painting called "Gongbi" (meticulous), the works of the master, with extreme attention to all details, pierce, with the power of a rudimentary lance, the expiration of time through the centuries, "he says. Francesco Saverio, curator and critic of contemporary international art.
