This catalogue accompanies a trio of simultaneous shows by Chinese painter Zeng Fanzhi across Hauser & Wirth venues in Hong Kong, London and Zurich. All feature new work, and each location focuses on a different theme: abstract landscape, figuration, the intersection of Chinese and Western representation in drawing and painting. The book gives an overview of the latest developments in the ever-evolving style of one of China's best-known exponents of expressionistic figuration.Zeng was a protagonist of the Hong Kong Arts Center's 1992 show "China's New Art, Post-1989", which announced his work and that of many others on the global stage. Newly commissioned essays feature from David Anfam (senior consulting curator at the Clyfford Still Museum) and Fabrice Hergott (Director of the Museum of Modern Art in Paris). On-site studio photography by Oliver Helbig also provides a unique glimpse into the artist's practice and process.
