About the artwork

This work continues in style with my style of block handling. But this block processing is more dynamic and jumping. Because I’m no longer just horizontal and vertical segmentation;  I added diagonal and multiform. This makes the vision jump. The processing colour of the strong and light, thick and thin giving more prominent facial and hand visual feelings.Whether the painting is good or bad. Its main function is to entertain oneself and the audience.

About the sitter

This piece depicts the artists wife, Lina,  standing in the sunset cast in a warm light.

About the artist

Charlie Xu is an artist living in Queensland. While ultimately believing that it does not matter, he is attracted to the uncertainty over the question “what is a good painting?” 

“Whether the painting is good or bad. Its main function is to entertain oneself and the audience.”

Behind the scenes

Portrait paintings and paintings of other subjects seem to have no special meaning. Expressiveness is not as high as photographs, and the sense of record is not as good as the film.
