Recommended by Sam (Gallery Owner & Director): "The Contemporary Chinese artist Li Shuang (the only female member of the Xingxing group 'Stars' which served as the vanguard of modern Chinese art) was born in Beijing in 1957 into a family of intellectuals who came to feel the full weight of Mao Zedong's suspicion and persecution for writings and images conflicting with the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). After two years in prison (1981-1983) she left China for Europe. This wonderful collage from the 1980s makes no specific political reference. The patterned pieces of implied fabric reinforce the action of the three figures."
