Sun Liren (b. 1956, Changchun, China)

Sun Liren is a well-known contemporary Chinese artist with a wide degree of influence in the arts scene, who has also authored many books. Through his reflections from years of teaching, he has developed a unique approach, narrating his pictures from multiple perspectives. His style presents a contemporary China, his new 'Enchanted' and 'Floating' series as worthy pieces in today's collectors' selection of fine arts.

China is a fascinating country with a long and colourful history spanning the cultural boundaries of many dynasties, each with their unique deep rooted cultures. These different dynasties brought forth their own precious relics which hoard treasures of archaeological, historical and cultural value. These relics tell stories depicting the different eras' rail of changes, values, ethics, beliefs, cultures and faith.

The immeasurable value of these relics has also made them become increasingly popular and favoured as collectors' items. In addition, the growing rarity of such relics bestows upon their collectors a position of status, standing and academic elegance. Their popularity, however, has also brought about the presence of unethical beings flooding the market with fakes and replicas. Therefore, when one is able to distinguish true quality from pretentious fakes, it displays a scholar's intellect, the historian's eye for details and the discerning collector's eye for the truly precious. While the relics hold precious value, they also invite collectors on spiritual journeys into the vibrant ancient past, allowing a fresh and critical examination of history and human society. Sun's artifacts are invaluable national treasures. Be it the grand bronze cup of the Shang Dynasty, the blue & white china of the Song dynasty or the painted pottery of the Yin dynasty; they are icons of China, symbols of oriental tradition. Let us join Sun on a journey into the past.

Since time, immemorial humanity has been ensnared within boundaries set by the depth and mystery of nature and the gravity of history. Thus is humanity set upon the path known as Fate. For what is self, if we are but specks in the bigger picture of the world? The intricacy of the individual is but sand in the wind, a raft carried mercilessly upon the tides of fate, inconsequential and helplessly meek in the face of history’s tide, society’s shores. Order, morality, law and culture further tighten this vice of inevitability. And so we drift, helplessness swallowed by the relentless, merciless waves.
