I like it alot! I'm eagar to look up more art like this. I enjoy the more masculine esque women and vice-versa for men, especially when it comes to art.

By now, i've looked at these paintings three times and each time i like them more. I particularly like 2004 with After Work that has strong overtones of Gauguin's Tahitian women. The same goes for Garlic Wine. And then, of course, The Goose harks back to Leda and the Swan, depicted by many Western artists, among them Leonardo da Vinci.

The women in these paintings are modern women. They are capable of doing a man's job, even hard work like soldiering, and yet they remain feminine. I'm glad that they're portrayed with strong bodies (necessary to do hard work) because i'm sick and tired of the girly images from the US and China that portray women as nothing but plastic-surgery enhanced sex objects, i.e. girls devoid of a brain but full of hope that a man, any man, will fall for their physical attributes. Despite their unmistakable sexuality, these women have an androgynous quality that reminds me of the Cultural Revolution during which both genders were dressed up in the same hideous uniforms in order to play puppet roles during the Mao Ego Trip years. When i looked at the artist's bio i was pleased to note that she had indeed been influenced by the Cultural Revolution.

Several of the paintings have symbolism of Chinese traditions with which, unfortunately, i'm unfamiliar and i'm not "getting it." An example thereof is Before The March.

All in all, this is a great artist and China should be proud.
