Hauser & Wirth's Downtown Arts District location will host Zeng Fanzhi, the first Los Angeles solo exhibition by the renowned Chinese artist, featuring a series of monumental, abstract landscapes presented harmoniously within the distinctive soaring space of the South Gallery.
Zeng Fanzhi's intuitive approach to the canvas is evident in his bold, expressionistic abstractions evoking natural phenomena. Rendered with a dynamism and exquisite palette, these paintings echo the magnetism and perceptual impact of 20th century colour field painting but with a distinctively 21st century aura. Heralding Zeng Fanzhi's latest technical breakthroughs, the works on view initiate the artist's use of bright, saturated fields of colour to define a painting. A seemingly vast expanse of hues, closer inspection of each surface reveals a delicate interwoven palette of vivid pigments.
This exhibition marks the latest in Hauser & Wirth's ongoing series of Los Angeles presentations conceived to introduce the city to the oeuvres of foremost international contemporary artists, further forging connections across geographical and cultural territories.
