李超的绘画有一种诡异、荒诞的感觉,其想象力使得时间与空间、历史人物与现时人物之间出现了一种混杂、微妙和暧昧的关系。虚拟的真实通过变异的形象穿越了真实与虚构的二元对立。什么是真实?什么是表现等等这些问题都在几乎虚拟的形象之中淹没了。从而显示了他的绘画跨出了对于“似真性”的追求之后,在一个新的语境中的自由穿越与拼合,从而凸现了一种“不确定性”的作用,一种无法把握的无限变动。
他的作品中分为“过去”和“现在”二部分。“过去”的部分往往有迹可寻,每个人在“过去”中的经历往往是具有确定的形象,但“现在”的部分则充满了戏仿的幽默。他画中有许多我们需要的能量和想象,人物造像和描绘的器物,实际上是体现出对琐碎平庸的不可奈何的现状的讽刺与戏谑,这种戏仿与戏谑,有些是指向平庸的“众数”,有些是指向我们以往所侍奉的“大师”、“领袖”,也有些是指向造成“众数”的无聊和消极的生活环境。他的绘画意义不是在对应的现实关系中去寻找,而是在一种既往的形象中寻找现实对它的投影,以及李超对这些存在现象的态度和立场。
 
Li Chao’s paintings give out a touch of fantastic bizarreness. He creates, through his rich imagination, a motley, subtle and even ambiguous relationship between time and space, historical figures and contemporary people. Virtual reality in a variable form transcends the binary opposition of reality and fiction and such questions as what is real and what is expression are drown in an almost virtual image. There lies the charm of his paintings: after his pursuit of “verisimilitude”, he has achieved free crossing and collaging in a whole new context, thus highlighting the function of “uncertainty” and an uncontrollable endless change.
His works can be divided into two parts: “past” and “present”. The “past” part is often traceable as people tend to take a definite image in their past experiences while the “present” part is overflowed with the humor of parody. His paintings contain lots of energies and imaginations that we need. The characters and objects he draws essentially reflect a satire and tease to the trivial, mediocre and yet unchangeable status quo. This burlesque sometimes targets at the mediocre “majorities” and sometimes at the “masters” and “leaders” we used to wait upon as well as the living environment that causes the boredom and negative attitude of the “majorities”. The significance of his paintings is to find not a corresponding relation in reality but a real-world projection of all previous images and Li Chao’s attitudes and stances towards those existing phenomena.
