Lot Essay

“What I am interested in is using art to depict the various kinds of relationships between people. Traditionally, painters are interested in concrete scenes like twilight, the corner of a room, a portrait or a landscape. But in my opinion, for humans the most important thing is not the concrete surroundings but their abstract relationships with others.” – Fang Lijun
