Modern Warriors
by Galerie Ora-Ora
Location: Galerie Ora-Ora
Artist(s): LI Xiao
Date: 22 Apr - 7 May 2011

Galerie Ora-Ora is pleased to present neew paintings from Chinese artist Li Xiao in a series titled Modern Warriors. This exhibition entertains notions of femininity and modernity as juxtaposed against ancient emblems of masculinity and power. Li Xiao uses bold vivid color to paint figures from contemporary life - celebrities, models, farmers, and workers - onto true color renderings of Emporer Qin's Terracotta Warriors. The artist works to engage us in an exploration of each transformation in an attempt to express the distance and unfamiliarity of that ancient culture with society today.

The opening is on Thursday 21 April from 6:00-8:30pm with the cocktail reception sponsored by Ora-Ora Wine Selections. We hope to see you all there!
