CHEN LI (b.1971) - Human Buddha. Evolution.
Chen Li's "Human Buddha. Evolution" is a a study of obtaining and losing peace of mind. Progressing through increasing degrees of abstraction, his collection of Human Buddhas shows a serene state of mind which gradually deteriorates into bewilderment and a worm-like information overload leaving the contemporary cosmopolitan man no room for contemplation. At a time when the accelerated pace of life has created a desire for greater mindfulness - or living in the moment, a concept based in Eastern philosophies - this powerful examination by a talented artist rooted in the East is particularly timely.
