About the artwork
Hong Zhu An invokes nature as inspiration for his new paintings, but categorically denies their identity as landscape images as well as their iconographic allusion to any particular symbols. In this vein, Hong is pointedly marking his break with tradition. His works are not only resplendent with zen, but also innovative and pulse with artistic depth.
