Lot description
"Angel No. 8" (2006) is a sublime large-scale color photograph by Cui Xiuwen (China B. 1970). whose work is considered by curators and collectors to be ground-breaking feminist art from China. This work measures 59 x 59 inches (150 x 150 cm) unframed, is edition 3 of 8, and in perfect condition. Here, a young girl is depicted close up in a surreal pose, while smaller images of this same girl can be seen in the distance laying upon a paved courtyard and even poised upon the rooftops of traditional Chinese buildings in the distance, as if angels, fulfilling the title. Cui's "Angel" series explores ones own sense of their place in the world, as well as on the universal longing that adults have to return to childhood.

The artist was born in 1970 in Heilongjiang, China and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1990 from the Fine Arts Department of Northeast Normal University, Jilin, China and a M.F.A. in 1996 with a focus on Oil Painting from the Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China. She had three solo exhibitions of her photography in 2011 alone including: 2011 “Existential Emptiness,” at Kiang Projects, Atlanta, GA and “Existential Emptiness,” Eli Klein Fine Art, New York, NY; "Discourse on Inner Humanity,” Chongqing Tank Loft, Chongqing, China. Her work has been exhibited and collected in top Private and Museum collections including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY; The Florence Museum, Italy; several notable Museums in China, Korea and throughout Asia and Europe.
