In her new series Golden Sky , acclaimed painter Yu Hong reanimates history by combining classical and religious composition with scenes from secular life. Inspired by the Buddhist cave paintings of Dunhuang and Kizil, classical western art and her own reading, the artist populates her large canvases with life-size men, women and children going about their daily lives against the backdrop of a golden sky.
