Installation comprised of printed cardboard
Upon gravels (or arguably cements), the artist scattered numerous human-hand shaped paper cuts from cardboards. At the center of each of the geometric parody of human hands -- the palm part -- an ambiguous shape is carved out. Though hard to read, the pattern carved might be associated somehow to a plant or some floral structures, given Ren's constant floral citations in art. The hands are painted in red -- vermilion, to be specific -- yet not entirely; gradations to light orange and charcoal occurred at two ends of the paper cut. Inserting a floral design on the carved hands, and placing the finished cuts on various natural backgrounds (besides gravel ground, another photograph shows the work installed on a grassy land), Ren might to highlight the unbreakable connections between human (cultural developments) and nature. Ecology is an issue that urges attention!! (Mache, Dialog mit der Sprache der Kunst ((An Actual Dialogue with the Language of Art ), 2013, Erstausgabe Edition) (Jerry Wu'23).
