Faces of Female Generations
by Jingwen Yao

In Jingwen Yao's recent painting titled "Grandma, Mom, and I", the exploration of identity is
intricately interwoven into the familial narrative. Through the Russian nesting doll motif,
it delves into the identity, stories, and emotions of three generations of Chinese women.
Confronting societal shifts, the painting mirrors the evolving dynamics within the family, embodying an exploration of personal narratives and broader socio-political changes.
