“Boy with Dog” 2018, oil on wood panel & cup, 48×60”.
In this piece, I painted a boy pulling a puppy out of his shorts, based on a video from the app “Neihan Duanzi”. The little country boy put the puppy in his pants purely for fun. He is too innocent to realize how people might interpret this act as perverted. Is this little boy vulgar? Is he vulgar for his innocence or his family status as villagers?
