Lot Details

"Pinaster Landscape Diptych", (2007) is a c-print color photograph in two parts by famed Chinese artist Huang Yan (b. 1966), measuring 59 x 47.25 inches (150 x 120 cm) from an edition of 8. Drawing from the past to examine the present, Huang Yan integrates the cultural heritage of traditional Chinese landscape painting into a new type of portraiture. Huang Yan is famous for using the nude human figure as canvas for painting scenes from traditional Chinese landscapes and iconography, painting directly onto the nude body which becomes a new canvas, in this case a beautiful Chinese woman whose entire body has been painted in a sublime manner as she stands in a pine tree.

Huang Yan received his degree from Changchun Normal University in 1987 and has exhibited constantly throughout Europe, US, and Asia. His most important exhibitions have been "1st Chinese Art Triennial" at the Guangzhou Triennial Exhibition, Guangdong Museum of Art in 2002; "Between Past and Future: New Photography and Video From China" at the International Center of Photography, in New York in 2004; "100 International Artists" at the Casoria Contemporary Museum in Italy in 2005; "Body Language: Contemporary Chinese Photography" at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia in 2008, and a solo exhibition at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art in New York in 2007, among many others. Huang's works are represented in public collections internationally including the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
