"Untitled" by Zeng Fanzhi
"Untitled" by Zeng Fanzhi was painted in 1998. It is a color lithograph. This piece of art was a part of his mask series. I read that his art was mainly based of the alienation and psychological torment inherent to modern life. This figure intrigued me because he is just laying out in a bed of flowers, by himself, day dreaming. I feel like the colors are so bright and I like how the color of the sky is the same as some of the flowers, which in my opinion brings the painting together. The mask seems very expressionistic and in an exaggerated style.
