“Wang Jiazeng revealed a soul-stirring vision of human dissimilation. He makes no exception of which the figures are all uniformed: all in blue and cadre cap. They can be either workers or farmers; neither government official nor merchants whose status are not identified and is only an abstract sign or symbol. Nowadays, Chinese are dressed of all sorts, but, in Wang Jiazeng’s works, people still look like are in 30 years ago, what whom wear has no individual character while all in blue tuinic and trousers. No one would forget that was one of the important marks of China then, therefore, Chinese were called ‘blue ants’ by Occidental. He is totally in defiance of the changes of time and rummages those out through chests and cupboards, in which not indicate that he is introspective of that special years but to symbolize the fetter and imprison of human character and nature. This tricky symbol seems like both another life and actual life. Under such circumstance, we are as if turning into a condition of being died but still alive. The style in grayish and black make the universe looked as though casting by iron, thus the dense callousness raid us that we could not help thinking about life and death.
To review all his works, some of them in obvious are as if a doorway to the outside world from the veil of Wang Jiazeng’s creation, in which he coats with slight colour of raddle. The colour is, as same as the woman in his box, to transform a thread of warmth from its origin coldness, though the basic keynote is still as hard as nails. Only are those little factors making the theme of expression suddenly appear definite relativity, and decreasing absoluteness so go into full of life. But, it is only the briskness of Wang Jiazeng’s or to say, as same as black humour, it is a black liveliness.
