I can watch you
You can scrape off
the salt on the wound

You can watch me
I can play
a boat sailing on the land

We turned clothing
back into clothes
into dazzle

Your eyes
are made of sweet water
made of salt water

by He Chi

About the Artist

Yan Wenhui

Yan Wenhui was born in Gansu Province in 1990. He graduated from the Department of Oil Painting, School of Fine Arts, Tianshui Normal University in 2015, now lives and works in Beijing. Yan Wenhui dedicates to exploring the relationship between individuals and memory through painting, which originates from himself and his experience of rural life, the land, and his family. Through observation and construction of these memories and feelings, the artist builds a graphic painting content that is consistent with his feelings. It's not quite accurate to some extent, but it's just right. He expresses his personal feelings through this image of the self.
