About the artwork

Yu Nancheng skillfully fuses tradition with modernity in his work, through his use of “China Red” oil paint, a highly symbolic colour in Chinese society. The vivid and intense red figures beautifully contrast the black background of the work and creates a powerful visual impact, as Tiananmen Square looms impressively in the distance. Yu’s use of impasto replicates the slow and controlled movements of Tai Chi, creating a textured surface, and when combined with the minimal horizontal composition of the work, provides the viewer with a fascinating visual experience.
