A refreshingly upbeat entry into the otherwise somber themes of Yuan Ming’s oeuvre. Painted during a trip back to his hometown in Gansu, where Yuan grew up in a rural farming village with a drastically different lifestyle than the one he finds now in Beijing.

The innocent nonchalance of the grazing horses, the perceptible optomism of the riders. Most striking of all, the sheer scale of the baby blue skies, giving a visceral sense of openness and possibility that stands in stark contrast to the claustrophobic pressures of Yuan’s symbolic portrayals of city life.
