Ink and Color on Rice Paper, 52 x 52 cm
About the artwork
To depict the concept of time horizontally, with the use of contrasting color that is at odds with a realistic presentation of nature, demonstrates the profound experience of Hong Zhu An in not only understanding the essence of unique abstraction and communication, but also the depths of his imaginative dialogue. He chooses minimal composition with less elements, as well as blurred contours to create a simplistic visual presentation that has the ability to remain in people’s vision.
