Ma Qiusha (马秋莎) B.1982, Beijing, China

Ma Qiusha works from her studio in her native city Beijing. Receiving a BA from China Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, in 2005 and an MFA from Alfred University, New York, in 2008. She went on to exhibit at international shows at prestigious galleries and museums such as the National Museum of China, Minsheng Art Museum, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, ZKM, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Groninger Museum, Tate Modern Museum, Beijing Commune and Portland Institute for Contemporary Art. Perhaps the most cutting edge and pioneering exhibition on a social media platform to date "We Chat: A Dialogue in Contemporary Chinese Art"

Having studied Digital Media Arts and also Electronic Integrated Arts the artist is accomplished in a versatile range of new media languages. The titles of the artwork even imply for participation – “You Self Illuminous. 2”, 2013 – Urban architectures, become surreal, abstract impressionism. Urban surfaces crafted from reflective paper, visible dimensions of high rise buildings interplaying in 3 and 4 D on the horizon. A personal connection to the subject is apparent – nostalgia – ever present and in her works in every medium. As a young collector in the new millennium, Benjamin saw Ma Quisha as the most current and super talented artist, who is really ahead of the curve, pioneering social media collaborations and producing visual experiences that appeal to a modern day city dweller.

About Black Water: Quote, Ma Qiusha

“All contents of Black Water were from a dream in my childhood, it was a only one dream with color I had (other dreams are gray) and it’s still fresh in my memory.

Why the stair case that leads to another, why the toilets on the roof, why the swimming pools that lead to? These uncharacteristically scenes presented a faithful account of my dream.

I was very depressed in that growth period, fortunately, there have Surrealist Art with me, and it looked like open a secret channel that I can escape from the real world. In the dream, been more or less reflected the experience of my childhood.”
