Zhang Enli: A Room That Can Move

Power Station of Art / Shanghai / Art

In the 1990s, early in his career, the artist Zhang Enli focused on the figurative, painting acquaintances going about their everyday business. Later, he began to make objects that sensitively represented household items such as hoses and containers. In the new millennium, his attention shifted to the outdoors, and he began to paint natural and urban landscapes. With freer, looser brushwork Zhang Enli has now released himself from the picture frame, and is invading space as if it were the subconscious. In his largest retrospective to date, 100 paintings span the various stages of Zhang’s career, and include the recently commissioned “Space Paintings.” —E.C.
