Lot description
"Butterfly Loves the Flower" (2012) is a stunning color photograph by emerging Chinese female Contemporary artist Yu Hang, which belongs to her dream-like series of figurative works that all tend to represent young, beautiful Chinese women in lush historical narratives, suspended in a fantasy-world somewhere between old and new China. This work is edition 2 of 10, measures 39.37 x 37.40 inches (100 cm x 95cm), and is in excellent condition.
This photograph depicts the young woman sitting contrapposto toward the viewer while holding a fan. She wears the sumptuous, traditional headdress, makeup, and embellished fabric of the gilded Qing dynasty-era. Making this more than just a pretty picture are the Chinese calligraphic marks and Qing Dynasty decorative elements that appear throughout the room, added to the scene by digital manipulation of the negative by the artist. The stunning photographs by Yu Hang transport one into a sensual realm that is uniquely the artist's own, and proves why she is one of the top Chinese Contemporary artists of her 1980's generation.
