“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.
