As a straightforward and interesting freedom advocator, Zhuo Ying believes that the further one travels, the more different the sights will be. Zhuo Ying’s unique personality and styles, nurtured by the years of overseas study and by a strong thirst to explore unknown cultures, are showcased as a multi-cultural fusion in her works. The unconventional objects painted to convey her thoughts and ideas, and the contemplations and sentiments about life implied in her works, make most of the signs and symbols in her paintings symbolically significant.

Zhuo Ying just like a magician, conjures up a parallel virtual world to accommodate the thoughts unbearable and things both unattainable and unchangeable in reality. In her surrealistic images, the exaggerating and uncanny scenes, unexpected relations and images between figures and objects can form complex and bizarre circumstances, familiar and unfamiliar, just like a fantasy flashing in our brain or a remote dream. In the meantime, Zhuo Ying’s points of views are demonstrated by every single one of those recurrent images with re-set relations: the human species is not above all, and all species are created equal; the role of everything is not as our stereotypes which are taken for granted or invariable. Those bold originalities, the ideas that rarely come to us or the attempts we daren’t make at ordinary times, all become rational and full of interest in the world she built.

Instead of being deliberate embellishment, the exquisite brushwork is true expression of the dreamy subconsciousness, not meaningless beauty, but Zhuo Ying’s sentiments brimming in between her brush and canvas, even surpassing the significance of reality. To be more specific, Zhuo Ying’s works display the overlapped forces between consciousness and unconsciousness, eerie, uncanny, unrestrained, unreal, but more extensive and profound than reality. No matter whether there is parallel space or time in the real world, all the miraculous circumstances structured by Zhuo Ying, parallel to reality, enable us to see the infinite possibilities which also go for Zhuo Ying’s broad road to the art.
