Gestural figures in pink and gold glide across the picture plane of this large, lyrical painting by Andrew Lui. Framed size is 40 x 72 inches.
Born in Guangzhou, China, Lui participated in the Chinese Cultural Revolution as a member of the Red Guard but escaped to Hong Kong in 1970. Making his way to Toronto, Lui studied at the Ontario College of Art before traveling to the UK, and Italy. In Florence, he was drawn to the dynamic Uccello's Battle of San Romano (c. 1456).
