About the artwork
Xie Ai Ge works with bronze and synthetic materials, then lacquers them in deep black. The Tree Top Memory series evokes a world of mountains, woods, streams, mythical figures and wild animals that caught her imagination when she was younger and living deep in China's hinterland. The depicted birds, in particular, have long been a personal representation of freedom and innocence. They symbolize the purity of her vision of life which has not been diluted or corrupted by her experience of living in modern Shanghai.
