Lot Essay

Born in Jiangsu, Lu Hui graduated from Nanjing University of the Arts and further studied at Peking University. Lu paints entirely in black and white, repeatedly dyeing the rice paper with ink to create thick layering often seen in Western oil paintings.
Rendered in a natural and photorealistic manner, Lu Hui conveys the contrasting images of the bitter cold wintriness and a strong sense of vitality through a thick layer of snow and the tree branches and leaves beneath it. The negative space takes centerstage in Deep Snow and gives viewers breathing space and deepens the perception of space.
