About the artwork

This painting depicts an infinite number of people, united and engaged in practicing rhythmic Tai Chi. There is a strong use of texture and shadow with a minimal horizontal composition - bearing a simplicity that resembles Rothko’s vast color fields, but with prominent reds and unique materials representing the honour and values of Chinese culture.
