Lot Details

"Deep Red Lips (Skeleton)" (2012) is one of the most recent, sensual and surreal nude color photographs by emerging artist and rising star, Chinese female Contemporary artist Yu Hang (China, B. 1981). This photograph is edition 1 of 10, measures 39.37 x 37.4 inches (100 x 95 cm) is unframed in excellent condition.
This sensual photograph depicts a young Chinese woman posing nude wrapped in the arms of a skeleton, as if dancing. Yu Hang has digitally manipulated this c-print to include a colorful 'tattoo' of a fierce fighting warrior across her porcelain skin. The artist brilliantly merges life and death, tradition and modernity, femininity with masculinity. The margins and rich tones of Yu's paintings tend to be intentionally undefined and blurred, making it unclear this is a painting or a photograph.

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, Europe and the US. The artist currently lives and works in China.
