For a long time, Wu Chen has been fascinated by science fiction. When painting, the artist often listens to a variety of classic science fiction audiobooks. They unconsciously or unintentionally influence the his creations just as specific scenes and events in everyday life can also influence the dream world. In Wu’s view, the egg in the picture is no longer a real egg but, rather, a UFO manipulating the artist’s picture in mid-flight. With regards to composition, Wu has set up a tension between the downward flight of the egg and the upward buoyancy of the painting tool. The two divergent forces have created a relationship between the two subjects.
