Shi Shao’s paintings are made up of single or multiple threads of colourful lines, with some of them round and some pointed, intertwining in different densities. She plays with the images to emphasise their lightness as well as injecting energy into the threads. With the process of adding and removing the threads, the resulting images of the actual lines versus their silhouettes and the repetitiveness of such process draws upon certain lifestyles in the contemporary world.
Shi Shao was born in Chengdu in 1978. She graduated from the Fine Arts College of Sichuan Normal University and has worked as a curator since 2016. She currently lives and works in Cheng Du, China.
