Xin Song graduated from Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in 1994ís. She studied Chinese folk arts exclusively and learned the complex techniques of Chinese traditional paper cutting for years.
Her recent work borrows pictures from all kind of magazines, in the service of large questions about social & political values. Many of the issues are discussed in these magazines because they are questions people already think about every day.
Current affairs, Political, War, Health, Beauty, Fashion, Population, Poverty, Luxury, The Environment & the Beauty of Nature ,Modern Life & Technology, Sex & Taboo
While she is colleting image for her papercut collage, she considers each small piece and its meaning, and when each piece finds its way in to her work, it brings that message & connection to the world in to her work.
Everyday she sees, hears, feels and thinks about
the world through magazines which people glance through & then throw away.
For her, she has found importance & valve in these materials as in many ways
they are mirror the world around us.
