Engaging with Art
The eye opening art of the Contemporary artiest of China and the life work of Uli Sigg have woken me up to political art. My mind has gladly drifted in the clouds of complacency up until now. The narrative of the CCAA’s history is very interesting. It has given opportunity to the art, the artist and the viewer to ponder a different view of modern China.
Seeing Weiwei exposition of giving the finger to the establishment even though he himself has played a large part in building the monument of the Chinese Olympic games, is fascinating. The Bird’s Nest, unlike the monuments of order, he gave discord to, has caused huge human suffering.
Here I offer my own work "The toss of a coin". It is a statement about reflection. What you see is what you get, no matter how the coins fall.
