Lot Details

"Floating Clouds No. 4" (2011) is an unabashedly dynamic figurative oil painting by Chinese Contemporary artist Zhou Jinhua (China, b. 1978). This work is one of his finest to-date, and possesses the artist's iconic "bird's eye view" and unique conflation of perspective, play on scale, intense colors and surreal narrative. This 'remote' perspective immediately distances one emotionally from Zhou's intense and often riotous scenes, and also heightens the sense of voyeurism. "Floating Clouds No. 4" measures 39.37 x 47.25 inches (100 x 120 cm) and is unframed in excellent condition.
As a young child the artist began climbing bridges and high rooftops to take photographs with his first camera at aerial perspectives and is greatly influenced by the “equal-angle see-through” (dengjiao toushi) perspective of traditional Chinese scroll painters.

The artist was born in Sichuan, China in 1978, and in 2002 received his painting degree from the elite Sichuan Institute of Fine Arts. Zhou has had solo and group exhibitions in China, Taiwan, Germany, and his paintings have been exhibited in Museum shows throughout Europe and Asia, including his 2010 solo exhibition:"Zhou Jinhua", at Neuffer am Park Art Museum, Pirmasens, Germany, in 2009 a solo exhibition, "We Are All Fine, but.....", Kunstverein Konstanz Museum, Konstanz , Germany and the group exhibition in 2007: "Encountering Paintings·Works of 10 Artists", China Art Museum, Beijing, China amongst others. The artist presently lives and works in Beijing China.
