Introduction

The figures in Jin Weihong's paintings are surprisingly gentle and relaxed, detached from all the desires and demands of any ordinary human in the modern world. Though seemingly female they are truly androgynous, or at least they are supposed to seem so. Going against traditional painting patterns and context, their distinct loneliness is an everlasting search of the artist for ego and humanity.

Sexless, and thus lonely, Jin's human figures project a personification of her own anxieties. Deprived of certain body features and sensitive details, they are cold and rational. Works like this have led the artist to even more creations of self-reflection, with two assembled human bodies simultaneously depending and lingering on each other sans emotion. It is common for artists to mirror their own emotions in order to relieve self-anxieties.
