New abstractions expressing "a restless journey of discovery" from the legendary and ever-evolving Chinese painter

A pioneer of contemporary art in China, Zeng Fanzhi (born 1964) is celebrated globally for his constantly evolving style and subject matter, and the works gathered here herald his latest artistic breakthroughs that contemplate the intersection of Western art and style with traditional Chinese subject matter and philosophy. "They are not real landscapes. They are about an experience of miao wu marvelous revelation]," he has written. "Miao wu constitutes a restless journey of discovery."
Gathering 10 works on canvas executed over the past few years--some of which are over 10 feet tall--the book documents Zeng's latest advances in brushwork and color, celebrating his intuitive approach to painting. Vivid yellow, cyan blue and vermillion are set as the dominant colors that define each painting, while tonal variations remain nuanced as Zeng's signature inky black brushstroke creates a vibrant network of patterning.

Zeng Fanzhi has won international acclaims first for the Hospital and Meat series and later on for the Mask series in the 1990s. Gladys Chung is an art specialist and consultant working in Asian art for the past ten years at Christie's, Poly Auctions, and others, previously giving lectures at several universities in Hong Kong. Currently, she is director for the Fanzhi Foundation for Art and Education, in charge of the current Catalogue Raisonne Project.
