Oil on canvas
200 x 180 cm
At the center of the painting presents a male nude on his back. Though his weight is supported by two timber posts under his left and right foot respectively, he still stretches his arms horizontally as if yearning more balance. It could not be ascertained where the man is at; clues like the interlocked blue-and-white "sky" and splashes of green "grass" can only lead us to speculate somewhere outdoor -- perhaps a prairie, perhaps a plateau, perhaps both. The facture of this painting is economical, particularly embodied on the figure's torso -- the artist uses very limited pigments to communicate subjects. Rather as an integral oil painting, the composition of the work is disturbed by several randomly arrayed rectangular stripes. The "strips" seem to portray another figural imagery, but the incompleteness of the imagery projected disallowed specific reading. (Jerry Wu'23).
