YU Youhan’s works are distinguished for three main series: abstract, pop art, and landscape. The series not only alternate in different times of his career, but also interpenetrate each other in terms of painting language. For the artist, a characteristic shared between traditional Chinese art and the impressionist Paul Cézanne is a high level of generalisation. Generalisation is abstraction, a way to extract subjectivity from representational objects. In Yu Youhan’s early works, he demonstrated extraordinarily powers of generalisation. Abstraction has been one of the most important threads that runs through all of his paintings. His representational artworks are distinctly abstract whereas the abstract works are usually integrating figurative elements. Created in 2016, this abstract painting is full of simple graphics composed of lines and small spots, with a special texture. What's more, this work is the artist's only painting with acrylic paint on corrugated paper.
