A
Serious
Joke

The greatest humor is never straightforward, but straightforward can be funny.

Yan’s huge woodcut prints convey a very subtle unseriousness. The one, and sole object is presented on paper in a deadpan way. Artist chooses, and focuses on odd subjects like peeled orange or cashew, and magnifies the unimportance of these objects.

The theme of food is a common first impression people have from Yan’s work. However, what’s more accurate is, Ruonan is expressing the ridiculousness that comes from ordinariness, or even rationality.
