Lot description
"Fresh No. 1" (2014). Dimensions: 39.38 inches (100 cm) diameter, unframed, excellent condition. This meditative, fantasy-based realist portrait is by one of the most notable of the group of emerging Chinese artists born in the 1980's, female artist, Tian Fangfang. Tian graduated in 2011 from the prestigious Oil Painting Department of Central Academy of Fine Arts, China, with her first Museum exhibition held the same year: "Modeling Decade" at CAFA Art Museum, Beijing, China (2011).
Tian herself comments on the inspiration for her works: "The inspiration for my work comes from the frescoes of the Buddhist art in the Dunhuang Grottoes. When I learned that there were seven to eight layers of frescoes on the same wall, painted by (artists from) various dynasties, I was deeply touched by the depth of this artistic place...Examining the process by which everything is destroyed and rebuilt and transformed from ancient times through today inspires a kind of samsara."
