About the artwork
This minimalistic painting by Hong Zhu An features a neutral colour palette of muted tones, that conveys an aura of tranquility and peacefulness. Yet despite their simplicity, a sense of striking movement is palpable, produced by the bold yet delicate lines that run horizontally and vertically across the canvas, which gently guide the viewer's eyes along. The heightened sensitivity of the artist is clear, as he creates visual poetry through enchanting visuals as well as insightful abstract interpretations.
