About the artwork

Wielding his brush fearlessly even as he charts new artistic territory, Hong Zhu An allies eye and hand to connect contemporary forms with the age old Chinese sensibility. The muted colour palette of this painting imbues it with a sense of serenity and tranquility that is characteristic of Hong’s poetic oeuvre. The work transports viewers back in time, as the colours are akin to that of stone, while the forms he illustrates in white paint appear reminiscent of early cave paintings. This conveys an element of primitivism, as well as the purity of the beginning of time. Hong Zhu An’s works are not only resplendent with zen, but are also innovative and pulse with artistic depth.
