This stunningly vibrant woodcut - like all of Ren Hui’s masterful works - draws you in, and then asks you to step back and take a second look. Entitled "Smile," the charming woodcut resembles a smattering of red flecked with white when viewed up close, but from afar a three smiling faces begin to take form. The artist uses a method of modern pointillism, creating three-dimensional space within a two-dimensional canvas, while managing to beautifully simplify complex subjects.
