Zeng Fanzhi: "Meat"

"Meat" is an oil painting by Zeng Fanzhi done in 1992. Fanzhi is known for achieving for his signature fleshy red tones. Articles have described this painting as portraying the trauma, sorrow, and horror that he encounters daily. They also say that the uncooked meat shows that raw vulnerability of humans. By using red he connects the skin and the meat on the bodies. The two men have oversized hands which is Fanzhi's signature for his work. I chose this painting because I like the color tone and how it reminds me of food.
