Chinese artist Zhuang Hong Yi is best known for focusing on nature’s most delicate and spirited beauties—flowers. His colorful works are intricate, and tactile, exhibiting a dynamism that is both meticulous and carefree. Combining thick paint drips and collages of painstakingly folded rice paper, Zhuang zealously unites messiness with impeccability. The results are sculptural wall hangings that push the 2-dimensional boundaries of traditional painting. And did I mention they works are beautiful?
Paintings and Flowerbeds, is on view only through this Saturday, June 1, at Leslie Sacks Contemporary at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica.
