This exhibition catalog accompanies a trio of simultaneous shows by Chinese painter Zeng Fanzhi (born 1964) across Hauser & Wirth venues in Hong Kong, London and Zurich. Each location focuses on a different theme: abstract landscape, figuration and the intersection of Chinese and Western representation in drawing and painting. Together the book gives an overview of the latest developments in the ever-evolving style of one of China’s best-known exponents of expressionistic figuration.

The work of Chinese painter Zeng Fanzhi (born 1964) reveals a great deal about his homeland's rapidly changing society. In his Mask paintings, people wearing plain white masks confront the viewer with wide eyes and grotesquely exaggerated hands. In addition to these well-known images, this publication features works from all of his series, including the early Meat and Hospital cycles.
