"Undisclosed Desires" stunningly illustrates the manner in which Chinese Contemporary artist Lv Yanjun deals with issues regarding China's Cultural Revolution and the era of Tian'anmen Square uprisings. However, Lv Yanjun's works address this era in the history of China be featuring impossibly beautiful young Chinese women, usually wearing PRC Chinese uniforms, a seen here. The women possess a feeling of fantasy, arranged in a surreal composition, perpendicular to one another, giving the work a sense of weightlessness and makes one question the proper orientation and perspective of the piece,. He paints the skin of these women such a pale color of porcelain with intent, as a reference to their purity but also to the pallor and confinement of many during the Cultural Revolution.
