About the artwork

Martial Art II by Yu Nancheng depicts two figures practicing Tai Chi together. Yu’s skillful attention to the movement of the body is clear in this work, as he replicates the thoughtful and controlled moves of the martial art form through his use of impasto. The textured surface gives the piece a sense of vitality, reinforced by the dynamic poses of the figures Yu captures in the work, as well as the vivid “China Red” oil paint used which conveys the tension and intensity of the movement sequence being performed between the two figures.
