ZIHAN SU

CHINA [1978]

Researcher working on the history of the erotic arts will find an interesting thing: erotic paintings of the Republic of China period don't necessarily induce the sexual passion of the people living in Han Dynasty, while such paintings of the Shang Dynasty might not be sexually inviting to the Tang Dynasty people. The expression of eroticism varies from dynasty to dynasty in the history of china. Even people of the same period have different stimulating points in this regard. The expression mode of Su Zihan, a young artist, is to highlight the depiction of lip, tongue, waist and fashion of a woman; he does not focus on the hip and direct nude body of woman, which are traditional objects for artists.
