Lot Details

This stunning portrait of a beautiful young girl whose neon orange hair offsets her delicate facial features and her simple tank-top belongs to the acclaimed 'Heart Series' of small-scale figurative oil paintings by rising star, young Chinese artist Zeng Pu (b. 1982). Dimensions: 9.80 x 9.80 (25 x 25 cm), unframed, excellent condition, easily ships world-wide.
Here Zeng paints his subject against a white background, further transforming her into an apparition, as if from a dream or memory. Zeng's gestural and fluid use of oil paint intentionally blurs all details so that when viewed up-close this figure becomes nearly abstracted, the pools of color and fluid stokes become the subject,, yet when viewed at a distance, the dynamism and composition of the specific portrait resonates. The artist has already been the subject of an impressive roster of Museum shows including the Duolun Art Museum, Shanghai, The Macao Museum, The Nanjing Museum, and The Sichuan Art Museum among many others.
