Additional Information

This piece is one in a series of four screenprints titled May. The piece uses a colour palette of white and natural tones, punctuated by lines of yellow, red and grey. Richard Lin Show Yu may have titled his works with the name of a month to deepen their connection with a sense of time and place, whilst exploring abstract minimalism.
