Inspiration of the Day: Ye Hongxing
Posted by Colin Darke
Ye Hongxing is a young contemporary Chinese artist. I like the juxtopositioning of the detailed, decrotive flowers over the somewhat blurred faces. I would have to see this work in person though, because the faces almost look like they were photos that were given an effect by Photoshop. I am not saying that I don't appreciate digital images, but I think that it would be a strong piece if the underlying image is a textured oiled painting rather than a flat digital image. Let me know what you think.
