Abstract

This article presents the work of Chinese artist and printmaker Chen Haiyan, providing a critical analysis of her lifetime of woodcuts, prints, and ink paintings. The topics explored are the integration of dreams in Chen Haiyan’s art and their relation to “the fantastic,” which is analyzed from a theoretical and comparative standpoint through various works of literature and literary theory. The article considers the role of magical realism, fantastic literary devices, and Chen Haiyan’s personal folklore as part of her art-making process that intersects her dreams with her reality.
