Lot Details

"Rooftop" belongs to the iconic "Private Space" series of large-scale, photorealist oil paintings by one of China's top emerging Contemporary artists, Su Zhihan. This ethereal work depicts a beautiful, partially nude Chinese woman sitting atop a roof, far above a forest of leafy green trees below, with a stunning skyline filled with billowing violet clouds and a lighting-storm in the distance. An unknown bright light source shines upon her, spotlighting her stunning facial features and physique. Su paints her figure in blacks and whites, as if her image is sourced from a vintage photograph and collaged into the dynamic colorful night-scape, heightening the surreal narrative of this work. Dimensions: 59.00 x 43.30 inches (150 x 110 cm), unframed and in excellent condition.


Su Zhihan is one of the leading young Chinese painters since the 1980's generation, with numerous exhibitions at museums and galleries internationally. Exhibition venues for the artist include The Shangshang Art Museum (Beijing, China), the Royal Castle Museum (Tours, France), and VIP’s International Gallery (Amsterdam, Netherlands), among numerous others.
