The paintings were created on medium-size paper, between 35 and 60 centimeters in length and width. The motifs are from ancient texts on morals and classic romance novels, which impart the central ideas of Chinese traditions from a minor perspective.
The exhibition through Thursday also shows Wen's calligraphic works. Since childhood, she has been practicing calligraphy and has won many awards.
