An excerpt and photo from an article posted today by the Sydney Morning Herald Newspaper from Australia:
I mention these works mainly to show that artists are capable of making outstanding pieces using similar ideas and materials to Gladwell but with much grander ambitions. If the world's most exciting contemporary art is at present being made in China, that is not simply because the Chinese are making up for time lost during the Maoist years. There is a vision, a boldness and a hunger among Chinese artists that is rarely found in their Australian counterparts. The only nations to show a similar dynamism at present are South Korea and, to a lesser extent, Japan.
