'Five-Pointed Star Across the Steel Tube'

Liu Shaojun

 Metal-looking stars skewered with a bar

Acrylic on canvas
150 x 120 cm

This work is a smaller piece from a series I produced in 2010. In my work, five-pointed stars are the symbols for men, since they represent how sometimes men can be hurt. They are also a symbol of the Pope, and, ultimately, symbolic of certain ideals.


Liu Shaojun was born in 1964.
