Based on the Buddha statues of Tang and Song dynasties, he used black paint to produce plump sculptures yet with an airy soul, which make up the Energy in Emptiness series. His first solo exhibition in 1999 signified his official debut in the art community. He invented the technique that applies gold and silver leaf onto the ink lacquer and presented the subject with considerable vitality in different contexts, including the Spiritual Journey and the Beacon series. Since 2000, his multi-series exhibitions across around 20 cities and his works being widely in private and public collection have gained him worldwide recognition.In his creation, Li reproduces the very core of Eastern philosophy by making frequent and powerful references to classical Chinese thinking. The two pieces present at the auction, Harmonize without Compromise (Lot 51), Cloud Glider (Lot 50), demonstrate his insightful understanding of Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism respectively. With the support of different schools of traditional teachings, Li managed to explore the extensive possibilities of life.Harmony in DiversityConfucius said, “the gentleman aims at harmony, and not at uniformity. The mean man aims at uniformity, and not at harmony.” Created in 2000, Harmonize without Compromise is one of the very few deliverables that is themed by Confucian ethics and conveys his thorough thoughts on the relationship of agreement and disagreement. In the Pre-Qin times, harmony was the culmination of inclusiveness and diversity. The principle of “Harmonize without Compromise” recognizes differences and intelligent independence, which are the benchmark traits of a learned man. In this piece, the master stands with refined grace and dignified propriety, wearing “lotus shoes” and crossing his hands like a gesture in Jingang Quan. He has his eyes slightly closed while putting on a pair of modern over-ear headphones as if to connect with his inner self and the nature that surrounds him.The artist made the most of his uncanny sense of humor to depict the master as a representative of local gentlemen. The sculpture, while amusing the viewer with its peaceful posture, can also stimulate in-depth self-reflection.Shoot for the SkyCompleted in 2000, Cloud Glider as the highlight of Energy in Emptiness features the icon of Taoism. The artist added a silver layer to the wisp of cloud for a stronger dose of airiness and a breath of fairy life. The inspiration came from the artist's conversation with his son about the repair of ozone layer. The discussion led to the thought of Nv Wa, who patched up the sky with a piece of magical cloud that carries people's best wishes. In this statue, the wanderer stands on one foot on top of the rising cloud. He holds a small puff of silver cloud in hand, and his slightly slanted posture nurtures an upward trending momentum as if he is about to fly up high to follow in the footsteps of Nv Wa. Despite the seemingly unstable posture, the sculpture reaches a perfect equilibrium with the lightness of silver offsetting the solidity of ink. The pillar-like shape alludes to cloud being the spiritual core of Taoism, giving off a sense of peacefulness and liberty.Li Chen's diverse array of sculptures reproduce the realities and encompass the wide possibilities of human nature. He dives deep into our spiritual world and points out the right way for those who go astray, reaching an artistic and humanistic highland.

Creation is my way of finding a pure land.”——Li ChenLi Chen's artworks were described by Peng Feng, the curator of Venice Biennale, as a testament to the “return of beauty” in Eastern spirit and a rebranding of oriental philosophy. His statutes inherit traditional aesthetics in terms of visual presentation but at the same time exhibit modern vibe that offers the viewer both a sense of lightness and steadiness. Chinese schools of philosophy are also implicitly imbedded in his sculptures to make them come off multifaceted. The series Energy of Emptiness since 1998 sidesteps from the conventional styling of Buddha and morphs it into a modern look with Zen feel yet not without lightheartedness. Pure Land created in 1998 is the first representative piece that has incorporated the free-wandering spontaneity of Zhuangzi, highlighting the carefree mindset of the artist.Road to Global ProminencePure land has brought Li international fame. In 2004, he joined OPENASIA, 7th International Exhibition of Sculptures and Installations, where he won over the appreciation of Paolo De Grandis, an established Italian curator. De Grandis even went to the length of visiting Taiwan to invite him to the 52nd Venice Biennale. Li hosted Energy of Emptiness at the 2007 Biennale, and Pure Land was the highlight among the 15 exhibits. The exhibition shot him to global acclaim and made him one of the most celebrated Chinese sculptors. This piece has been part of many of his solo exhibitions afterwards, leaving a lasting impression on viewers with its half-floating posture and the spontaneous mentality it conveys.Fun in Recline, Fly in FreedomThe subject with a plump physique is reclining on the mountain top. He extends his arms backward and crosses his legs in a laidback way. Its slanting posture opens it up to flexible interpretation and reminds the viewer of Bada Shanren's dumb-looking fish, which swim freely in the boundless space with a pure heart. Li Chen transforms the reclining buddha from the Tang dynasty into a more modern image. The sleek black paint empowers the statue with a touch of solidity. The large stature sitting onto the hilltop lights up the composition with shining energy, creating a visual oxymoron and unique artistic delight.Feast of Art, Paradise of SoulPure Land is originally a Buddhist concept. For Li Chen, he enters a pure land whenever he is creating artworks. Li lets out his childish part through the innocent expression of the Buddha. Li joins the Buddha in his mental wandering and makes the journey delightful with his heart of gold. The artist's focus on emptiness creates an invisible yet impressive visual experience. The sculpture reflects his underlying peaceful mentality and draws the viewer to his creative realm that is not accessible yet with tremendous appeal.
