Lot description
"Deep Red Lips No. 3" (2012) is one of the most recent, erotic nude color photographs by emerging artist and rising star, female Chinese Contemporary artist Yu Hang (China, B. 1981). Her works are stunning snapshots into ethereal dream-scapes. This sensual photograph depicts a young Chinese woman posing nude, except for her provocative black garter-belt, thigh-high stockings and elaborate traditional headdress. Yu Hang has digitally transposed intense, colorful imagery of a dragon and an armored fighting warrior across her porcelain skin as if a tattoo. Yu thus merges tradition and modernity, as well as docile femininity with aggressive masculinity. The margins and tones of her works tend to be intentionally undefined and blurred, giving the feeling that one is viewing a painting and not a photograph.

This work is unframed and in excellent condition. From an edition of 8.

Yu Hang was born in 1981 in China, and graduated from the Sheng Yang Lu Yi Art School in 2001. She received a degree in 2006 from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, China and received her Masters of Fine Arts at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2009 in Beijing, China. She is represented and exhibited by top galleries including Eli Klein Fine Art, NY and Yang Gallery amongst others. Recent Solo Exhibitions include in "China Avant Garde" in Los Angeles, “Chalk, Ink” at the Beijing Tangsheng Art Salon, “The Female Dormitory at The New Kaifeng Bridge” at the Longyibang Gallery in Beijing along with other numerous shows throughout Asia, Euorope and the US. The artist currently lives and works in China.
