Zeng Fanzhi: Paintings, Drawings, and Two Sculptures

Regular price Regular price $100

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Zeng Fanzhi: Paintings, Drawings, and Two Sculptures at Gagosian, 555 West 24th Street, New York.

Zeng is at the forefront of a generation of Chinese artists who have achieved national and international prominence in the wake of the Cultural Revolution of the 1970s. This volume features eighteen paintings made by the artist between 2005 and 2015, including large-scale nocturnal landscapes, some populated by anonymous figures or identifiable historical subjects, and smaller, more abstract canvases in which schematic black branches stand out in sharp relief against backgrounds of sweeping horizontal brushstrokes. It also documents cast-metal sculptures of gnarled tree limbs.

The bilingual (English/Chinese) book includes an essay by curator Yuko Hasegawa, as well as the artist’s exhibition history. Extensive photography of the artworks—some on large gatefolds, which allow for close examination of details—and installation views of the exhibition round out the publication.
