Burden of Secrets, 2014

Yue Li

In this scene from a surrealistic nightmare, a tiny red figure in obvious distress is bent over with the weight of a huge blue thought bubble with fingers that point accusingly. The fact that the blue bubble is not light, but has the texture of stone adds to our sense that it’s a massive weight to bear. The artist created this work as a visual metaphor for the emotional and physical burden of secrecy, turned into imaginative symbols by the subconscious.
