Lot Details

"Tank, Tank" (2005) is a large-scale, highly important realist painting by acclaimed Chinese Contemporary artist Li Luming. Dimensions: 78.30 x 72.70 cm (198.9cm x 184.9 cm) unframed and in excellent condition. Ships from the U.S. "Tank, Tank" is painted in the greyscale of a vintage black and white photograph in a manner as if an image from a dream or memory, with a military tank with rural Chinese individuals on board rolls through an open field. Li's paintings are indeed reflective of the past, yet as their images are derived from vintage photographs, the artist's works reflect a world that is altered and suggest an unpredictable outcome, remaining in constant fluctuation.
