Situated 3,000 feet above sea level, Gansu is one of china’s most remote and impoverished provinces; but for artist Yuan Ming, it is the place of nostalgic dreams and natural beauty.

Painted in a heat of passion and completed within 30 minutes, “Hometown” is the most passionate work to date in Yuan Ming’s oeuvre. On the drive home for his wedding after years of city life in Beijing, Ming was awestruck by this scenery at once so familiar, and yet so distant in his mind. An oil on canvas executed in the techniques of traditional Chinese guohua ink painting, Hometown’s poignant imagery capture the essence of aesthetics as they exist in wistful memories.
