Reviews: Zheng Xuewu at Art Projects International



After achieving a surface of remarkable complexity, Zheng paints by hand his imagery, which usually occurs against a background of a single color. The combination of techniques results in art of singular complexity in which complicated abstract and figurative images, some of them painted and some not, compete for our attention. The intricacies of these one-of- a- kind colored prints border on the exquisite; they are mesmerizing in their occupation of pictorial space. Like so much of today’s good art, the work of Zheng occupies the interstices between genres and methods, with a resulting density of content that grabs the viewer’s attention.
