So many of us around the world have had our lives suspended, shuttered in our homes while trying to retain a sense of normalcy during these uncertain times. As we begin a period of isolation here in the US, there has been an outpouring of well-wishes from our friends in China – for whom restrictions are just beginning to lift.

In this spirit of solidarity and support, we have selected a group of artworks from our artists based across the globe that celebrate the poetry of life. Guo Hongwei (Beijing) and Lam Tung-pang (Hong Kong) capture the essence and whimsy of their everyday surroundings; Yan Shanchun (Shenzhen) and Wang Gongyi (Portland) look to the changing seasons; Mary Simpson (New York), Julia Bland (New York) and GAMA (Berlin) are inspired by poetry and myth.

We welcome you to discover these works of art, and the artists who have made them. Please visit our Ocula viewing room here
