American (b. 1952)
This is a painting about the changes taking place in present-day China. In cites like Beijing old neighborhoods known as hutongs are being torn down to make room for newer apartment complexes. The buildings marked with the character 拆 "chai" are slated for demolition. Is the young man walking by concerned by these changes or is his generation more interested in what’s new?
