About the artwork
Hong Zhu An's works exemplify the philosophy of transformation that has ceaselessly driven the artist forward; with the years of artistic ebb and flow running parallel to a life spent striving for calm transcendence, intersecting to form art that surpasses superficial measure and evokes sensibilities deep within one’s soul. The incited introspection, progressive devolution of meaning, and the timeless significance of its core philosophy presents the span of Hong Zhu An’s Art as a veritable study in the limits of human nature; cradling its frailty, celebrating its spirit, and exalting its undying strive for the sublime. Beginning first and foremost, of course, with the line.
