Catherine Clark wrote, “I wanted to choose strong artists—those pushing through clichés—not just strong work.” Artists like Cindy Shih, raised “to be self sufficient in order to find a sugar daddy, and to be a free-thinking woman so I could successfully assimilate to society.” Shih wrote that, “I took a mallet to the illusion, shattered my world, and I became a painter. I painted because it gave me a voice I never knew I had before, I painted because I no longer wanted to be silent.”
