"Ode to My Burning Country" Jess X Chen 2014 | gouache and ink

For the first time I found the time and confidence to make a painting that directly addresses the violence of my cultural history.  I see the Cultural Revolution as a forest fire that spread across China from 1966-1976. It clear-cut millions of family trees through extreme propaganda & violent class struggle instigated by the government. This is the last family dinner. Even sixty years later, my motherland still burns from the phantom pain.  Though I may never understand, I can honor the resilience of my people.

Thanks to yukoshimizu & chris buzelli for the direction, and extended time they spent on giving me feedback, and pushing me to do a personal piece. This was my personal take on the “utopia/dystopia” assignment on tutormill, an online illustration class. This piece has come a long way, as you can see through the many sketches in the last image.
