In his most recent work, Zeng Fanzhi has gradually moved away from expressionism and ever closer to symbolism, with a colour palette of lively pinks, greys and blues.

For his first official exhibition in Paris, Zeng Fanzhi presents a selection of sculptures and paintings dating from 1990 to the present day. The paintings grow steadily larger, and these immense landscapes project a fragility and complexity which at times evoke Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings. Born in1964, Zeng Fanzhi graduated from the Hubei Academy of Fine Art in 1991. Fascinated by German expressionism in his student years, Zeng Fanzhi drew particular inspiration from Max Beckmann (1884-1950) and his catastrophic conception of the world.
