Xavier Hufkens is delighted to announce the representation of leading Chinese
artist Zhang Enli (b. 1965) and his inaugural exhibition with the gallery. In
this presentation, the varied facets of the artist’s erudite and lyrical practice
are brought to the fore in a thoughtful and representative selection of works
spanning both gallery spaces.
Zhang Enli is a painter whose oeuvre has gradually developed from visual
interpretations of everyday objects to abstraction. Interested in the morphology
of painting and its relationship to space, he works in both two and three
dimensions and often creates works directly on the surfaces of walls or
cardboard structures. In recent years, he has made a series of immersive, sitespecific
environments known as ‘space paintings’ that push the boundaries of
his chosen medium. Uniting this diverse yet coherent oeuvre are the enduring
themes of memory and emotion, which the artist frequently explores in relation
to his experience of growing up in rural China and the present-day reality of
his life in Shanghai.
