    Yu Hong is a rare sensation of a portrait painter in the world of Chinese contemporary art, who possesses the ability to merge poetic sentiments and contemporary significances in her daily life. Solid and effortless painting skills as well as extremely sensitive capture of the charm of characters have made Yu one of the leading Chinese contemporary female artists. Motherhood is undoubtedly one of the most important milestones in her life. For Yu, who is delicate in emotions, all kinds of feelings and reflections on life were aroused throughout the stages of nurturing a new life, which prompted her to create the Witness to Growth series. After the birth of her daughter, Yu found that she was very similar to her daughter when she was a child, but there was a huge difference in the backgrounds of the two. Yu used then-taken photographs from the year she was born as references and reinterpreted them, simultaneously enlarging and outputting the news photographs found in media in units of years. Since the birth of her daughter, she has added the record of her daughter's daily life, making the series a total of 40 gropus of work in an autobiographical style. Yu uses her personal life from birth to the present to profile the grand background of social changes, interpreting the living conditions and essence of a generation with personal memories and experiences that are full of affection. Yu once said in an interview, "In my life, I found a lot of things that overwhelm my heart and yet can hardly be expressed through words. These are stories about kindness of human, barriers, speculation, love...... Everyone is driven by these sentiments; life stories are then being unfold. They became the subject of my work."

    在中國當代藝壇中,喻紅是不可多得的能夠在生活中尋找詩意與時代意義的肖像畫家。紮實的繪畫技藝、收放自如的輕鬆筆調、對人物神韻極為敏感的捕捉,使喻紅成為當代女藝術家中的翹楚之一。生兒育女無疑是人生其中一項重要里程,對情感細膩的喻紅而言更是激起對生命的各種感觸與省思,從而刺激她創作出「目擊成長」系列。在女兒出生之後,喻紅發現自己小時候與女兒極為相像,但二人的出生背景卻存在巨大差異。喻紅透過繪畫從自己出生那一年起每年的一張照片,同時以年為單位,放大輸出媒體上的新聞圖片,自女兒出生後再加入女兒日常生活型態的紀錄,成為共40組的自傳式作品。畫家以出生到現在的個人生命寫照,側寫社會變遷的宏大背景,以充滿感情的個人記憶、體驗及其經歷,撰寫一代人的生存狀態和精神風貌。喻紅曾經在採訪中道︰「在生活中,我發現了許多令人心情顫動卻又無法用語言描述的東西,這些都是關於人性善良、隔閡、揣測、愛意的故事...... 所有人都被它驅使著,於是生活發生了各種各樣的故事。它們成了我作品的主題。」
