SU Meng-Hung’s Cherry & Japanese Grosbeak-Red is based on a classical Chinese palace painting of birds and flowers by the Qing Dynasty painter Giuseppe Castiglione, converting the classical painting into a brilliantly colored but jarring visual image. The originally blank background is now covered by a bright-red background of petals, while all the technical brushstrokes and colors are replaced with saturated yet flat hues, creating a cultural symbol that only seeks to excite the senses. By using the bright yet kitsch elements of pop art to copy and convert traditional works, SU Meng-Hung found that even garish colors can be used to achieve a unique sense of elegance.
