“In life, educators adopt the way of ‘holding’ students in their arms; in studies, many teachers ‘whip in’ them; in ideological education, they ‘ride’ students.”
The four oil paintings exactly reflected the situation of “holding”, “whipping in” and “Controlling”. Human beings lose their identities and their ability of thinking in the society, so they just go with the stream, like the sheep.
I chose the naked dollies without head and puppet to represent respectively the people under the system and the strong system. The contrast between new produced dollies and the rigid system was very apparent. And I adopted the high saturation colors to pose a warning to the audience. And the series of these oil paintings indicated my resistance of the current situation.
