    • Zhang Huan's Spring Poppy Fields No. 31 on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum

      Zhang Huan's painting, Spring Poppy Fields No. 31, will be on display in the China gallery of the Victoria & Albert Museum from 24 September 2014 for a duration of two years.

      Employing an almost pointillist technique, Zhang Huan’s application of the thick pigment performs an optical illusion. From a distance, the canvas metamorphoses into a field of psychedelic colours; the pink, teal, lilac and cornflower blue palette appears to pulsate with energy. Upon closer inspection, the colours separate and the individual faces of the skulls emerge from their abstraction. Seemingly uncontrolled and haphazard, the placement of the skulls on the canvas is misleading.

      More details can be found on the V&A's website and here.
