Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The painting belongs to the most recent series by Cai Zebin, studying and reinterpreting the spirit in Henri Rousseau’s work, and expanding on the discussion of how Cai's perceptions as a painter of another painter's work interact with his own practice. This work is part of his series, “Laval” and specifically a reference to Henri Rousseau’s piece, “The Wedding Party.” While he was studying this painting, Cai was fascinated by the treatment and paint structure of the bride’s wedding dress. In the center of the painting, the bride seemed as if she was floating amidst the people and trees, giving her a ghostly feeling. Furthermore, the white wedding dress’s shape in relation to the composition of the painting reminded him of his own painting from 2014 titled, "My Suggestions are Never Heard". As such, he wished to paint a mask hanging from a tree branch in the woods with a feeling of weightlessness as it floats in the wind.
