Product description

Review

‘Weaving real events and Stars artists (including Ai WeiWei) with the fictional, this moving story shines a light on the internal workings of China and gives us an engaging heroine who rises above oppression to discover love, hope and success.’ Frank Sieren, Asia Expert

‘Moving but never mawkish... A deeply informed portrayal of the little-known but important Stars Arts Movement.’ Prof Maria Jaschok, Oxford University

About the Author

Freelance writer, author and speaker, Sylvia Vetta took up writing and broadcasting on art and antiques in 1998 when she began writing features for the award winning magazine of The Oxford Times. She went on to write for four magazines on art, history and science-related events. Sylvia Vetta has a lifelong passion for China. Her extensive interviews with Stars art movement founder, Qu Leilei, inspired her to write Brushstrokes in Time. Her long-running profile series, Oxford Castaways, has been compiled into two books. Reflecting her interest in China, castaway interviewees have included Lord Patten of Barnes, the last governor of Hong Kong; Dame Jessica Rawson, the curator of prestigious exhibitions on China; Dr Maria Jaschok, who lived in China from 1979-1995; and Oxford-based artist Weimin He.
