About the artwork

Representing ideologies held close to the artist's heart, 'Lie In' depicts a figure resting serenely on a cloud while the artist's signature bird watches over him. Ai Ge's trees and clouds are symbolic of enlightenment, thus perhaps commenting on the peace that may be found once the spirit ascends the materialistic. However, the idea of peaceful rest, detached and far away from the hustle and bustle of city life is a premise that the artist herself experienced when she first came to Shanghai. Her displacement only strengthened the roots of her childhood amongst the open air, however, but the otion is still a prized commodity- as is seen in this work
