A SERIOUS JOKE

The greatest humor is never straightforward, but straightforward can be funny.Yan’s huge woodcut prints convey a very subtle unseriousness. The one, and sole object is presented on paper in a deadpan way. Artist chooses, and focuses on odd subjects like peeled orange or cashew, and magnifies the unimportance of these objects.The theme of food is a common first impression people obtain from Yan’s work. However, what’s more accurate is, Ruonan likes to express the ridiculousness that comes from ordinariness, or even rationality.Medium Rock by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/
