I dreamt about Jellyfish floating in the Sky
Recognized as one of the emerging Chinese contemporary artists, Zhou Fan‘s work is impactful and colorful. His current series explores childhood dreams about jellyfish floating in the sky and then falling to the ground as mushrooms. Fan remembers his dreams vividly, and indeed he expresses each memory in detail.
Notes from the artist’s statement:
A series of my paintings is based on dreams that I had as a child of many many jellyfish floating in the sky, some of which fell to the ground on parachures and became mushrooms. These dreams had a strong impact on me, and I remember them vividly. Somehow I feel that it is easier to focus on dreams than reality. In one particular painting, there is a boy crying because he keeps things within him, is easily sad, and he refuses to face reality.
