Je fine art Gallery’s art world
Zhou Wenzhong's works stir up feeling of uneasiness. The strangers in the works become something to fear without knowing why. Their presence is not explained and they are surrounded by mostly empty backgrounds, but despite their vague surroundings the intent is very clear. The figures faces are either hidden or created to be very dark and piercing. The paint is applied heavily and deliberately creating figures that emerge from the canvas in a way that almost feels threatening. Despite the haunting feeling of these works, the colors are not only blacks and greys, but incorporate brighter blues, purples and oranges. Although these are generally colors associated with a lighter feeling they become part of the darker, haunting message.
