Rochedale South artist Yu Chao Du has, until recently, travelled regularly to China to work on city landscape design projects. However, forced to stay in one place since the spread of COVID-19 he has found his art practice has shifted from an exuberant celebration of city architecture to a more personal reflection of his own life and influences.
His recent work reflects on our shared sense of powerlessness and frustration as individuals affected by a global pandemic.
