Text by Lu Peng, Richard Vine.
Feng Zhengjie's oversize close-ups of smooth-skinned and flawlessly coiffed young women, rendered in unearthly shades of lurid green and pink, are one of the guilty pleasures of contemporary Chinese art. Inspired by 1930s Shanghai posters, Feng Zhengjie takes Warhol's silkscreen palette to new heights of luminousness. This volume surveys works made in 2008-2009: portrait series, floating flora series and new sculptures.

Essays by Eleonora Battiston and Zhu Qi-Pi Li. Introduction by Lu Peng. Interviews by Li Xainting and Chiba Sheigo.
Feng Zhengjie, whose work appears on the cover of 2005's China: The New Contemporary Painting, represents international trends toward borrowing and riffing on bygone styles--and the return to painterly technique--as much as he does his country's blooming contemporary art scene. His sources include posters of Shanghai in the 1930s and contemporary wedding photography, and the bright, streamlined style with which he addresses their conventions has the look of polished fashion imagery, an airbrushed 1980s feeling that's gotten increasingly eerie in recent years as his subjects' irises and pupils have shrunk to little dots on largely white eyes, giving them a glassy, doll-like look. Eleonora Battiston writes, "Their eyes change and follow the artist's transformations...year by year, with different thoughts, looking towards and within his country's history and culture."
