“Revolution of the Proletariat”
Historians agree: there’s no place quite like China. I’ve always found history and politics personally fascinating, and the former and latter of China was something of an enigma to me. In “Revolution of the Proletariat”, the piece depicts the forty year period of radical transformation, from the Japanese occupation of mainland China to the Communist revival and the Cultural Revolution. The piece is a commentary, more thematic than critical. The dramatic image, implied shapes, and interpretive color convey dynamics that tend to characterize a political revolution.
