About the artwork
Nature never fails to leave its viewers in awe and conjures up feelings of wonder and joy, similar to when the first signs of spring emerge - the snow on the mountains begins to melt and streams flow with melodic presence, a single flower blooms. Warmth creeps into the cold skin and we feel renewed hope. Hong Zhu An focuses on conveying the feeling that nature can provide, through the use of washes of vibrant color and rhythmic composition.
