Food, feasts and abundance have long appeared as themes in the work of Li Jin, a renowned artist who records contemporary moments using established ink painting techniques and traditional materials such as bamboo paper. In The world is yours, a man and woman are faced with a table laden with fish, their wide-eyed expressions mirroring those of the limp creatures before them.
