I love your pale complexion

While being one of the most recognized female artists of China, Lin Tianmiao never fails to wrap the beholder in a visual silken veil of threads and rounded objects. Using often human hair and grey and white soft tones, the purpose of her art work is to reflect the "ever-present tension between tradition and modernization in today’s China.” The strings in many of her works are metaphors for all the habits and customs that make up culture; the imaginary attachment to society from which one desires to set himself free.
