Artist: Jin Ming Lee
Created On: 2007
Image Medium: oil on canvas
Image Dimensions: 100x80cm
Art work Description:
One of the things that we appreciate about the art of Jin Ming Lee is that he gets around. This portrait of a young woman from the so-called Yi minority people (the Han people of China are the majority, and the other groups that make up the whole of the Chinese peoples are referred to as minorities) who live in the mountainous regions of Yunnan, Sichuan, and Guangxi Provinces, in East-Central China. In this studio-style portrait, although she is removed from the context of her native area, her native Yi Zu costume tells the rest of her story. Lee has done other paintings of minority peoples of China, in their native settings, but it seems that, in this one, he wants us to focus all of our attention on the beauty of the people and their traditional dress. By putting her in a studio setting he is letting us know that this is no person or picture from days gone by, but, instead, she is in the present, juxtaposed to the lives that the rest of us are living. The price, shown, includes shipping of the portrait dismantled, rolled, and shipped in a tube.
