Lot Details

"Angel No. 11" is an important and exciting color photograph from an edition of eight by Cui Xiuwen, one of the leading Chinese Contemporary photographers of her generation, whose work is considered by curators and collectors to be ground-breaking for feminist art from China. The artist repeats the image of one innocently dressed, naive-looking young Chinese girl in different poses and postures to represent the universal spirit of all people, and that our basic desires as humans vary little from one person to another, and all adults long to return to childhood on some level. The "Angel" Series of photos does not deal with social and universal issues, but rather a more personal commentary on the awareness and the realization of individual and singular feelings. How does a young mother in China in 2012 feel? How does a young Chinese girl feel growing up in 'new' China? This photograph is unframed and in perfect condition.

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
