White Peach I, 2020 

Mix media on canvas


28.6 x 16.35 cm

The butts that depicted by Ruofan are full and round like fresh white peaches, and the enlarged part reveals the ambiguity in disguise. At the same time, the artist blurred the multiple symbol identities constructed from the butt images. Ruofan subtly replaced the symbol sign of the butts and shifted their icon sign, with the title of the series, "White Peach". The artist skillfully reflects the "icon" and "symbol" in semiotics, as well as the opposition between rationality and arbitrariness. When we explain a thing, whether the meaning carried by the icon sign takes precedence or the symbol sign carries Meaning first?
