With the primary intention of his art being the expression of humanity's most complex emotions, Dou Rong Jun's 'Inexpressible' belays its title into a depiction of an anguish that transcends words. Conveying emotion through every component of his image, the artist chooses red to signify pain, anger and other emotions of passion, while constructing the body language of his subject in a contortion of helplessness: as if the degree of emotion has left him immobile.
Conceptual communication aside, the artist shows mastery over the representation of human form and the expression of emotion- be it physically or mentally. The overarching aesthetics are remarkably attuned to reality.
His subject’s hands are disproportionately large. This is because of the instrumental role hands play in all of man’s activities.
