Intaglio / 2018

This series of prints was created by three plates. They were composed and applied differently on paper to create different versions. The work includes a portrait of Mao Zedong, often known as Chairman Mao, as the subject, and one of his slogan, which could be translated as “Long live the victory of Chairman Mao’s revolutionary principles” (毛主席的革命路线胜利万岁). The work has some visual similarities to Andy Worhol’s screenprint work that uses the same figure, however, this work is meant to emphasize how individual is conceptualized and deified, and how could we respond to it in a contemporary context.
