About the artwork

Hong Zhu An's brilliant emerald work seems almost surreal even while based in pure abstract form, the background and spaces with their own distinctive personalities, coalesce with boundaries that dissolve and fade into each other. The painting is replete with a feeling of balance and harmony between the harsh green ink and the way it elegantly dissolves across the rest of the canvas, calling the viewer to accept the diversity of it's textures and forms. He intensifies his concept with the presence of intricate calligraphic writing in both spaces of light and dark, creating a perfect balance between light, dark and poetry.
