Contemporary Orientalism

By Chudan Li



Sea. Memory. Hometown.


Since my hometown a seaside city, I have a lot of memory about the sea. In this acrylic painting, I experiment with a unique technique to demonstrate the flowing quantity of the water. The use of golden yellow as the background colour creates a dramatic contrast with the deep blue ocean.




Suzhou


This work depicts the traditional architecture from Suzhou, China. In addition, I added some

personal imagination to it. A Chinese girl in red, the dramatic cloud, providing the piece with

theatricality and emotional power.
