About the artwork

This evocative work depicts the sculptured form of a man, whose back faces the viewer. The painting features a dark colour palette that imbues the work with a solemn atmosphere, reflected in the heightened tension conveyed by the figure’s hunched posture of contemplation. Yet despite the solemn mood, Liu creates a sense of energy through his application of paint with quick brushstrokes. By doing this, the artist presents a display of life in all its vigor, illustrating the force of human expression and the nuanced equilibrium between happiness and sadness, life and death and confusion and enlightenment.

About the artist

Born in 1980 in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province, China, Liu Zheng Hong graduated from Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts in 2004 with a major in oil painting. Armed with textured movement and a vivid sense of colour, Zheng Yong channels the most intrinsic of Chinese sensibilities into a distinctly western medium.
