Lot 35: Painting is Collecting-Plants No. 18

Info

Guo Hongwei's work represents part of his explorations of natural history and the human need to classify and preserve. Instead of a realistic study of plants, Guo-who works in a variety of mediums-takes advantage of the unpredictability of watercolour, drawing on its fluidity and transparency to create abstract forms, continuing his interrogation of the meaning of painting. Guo intends his washes of colour to resemble water stains, whose nebulous qualities approximate the fragility of living beings, caught on paper.
