Through Description - Zhan Chong's solo show


I think my paintings are related to "description". They describe some objects and logics at a distance, and Fetishism and Distance were two examples. This year I want to describe some concepts of more plentiful traits, so as to take another step back to the pictorial structure itself. I choose to describe "description".

This choice has something to do with the fact that I couldn't intensively read any book for a year, and often wobbled absentmindedly between several books. Paragraphs from them stood in front of my eyes at the same time. I didn't grasp the complete picture of any single book, but felt that each partial description was already an independent individual. For that reason, the producing process of the workings proceeded in a way of moving forward and repetitively revising back and forth. It gave rise to some wavering and uncertainty.

The word "description" easily reminds of look-on, structure, rhetoric, and sequence. These concepts happen to meet my interests, and constitute most of my thinking reactions to the external things. I wonder if I could describe "description" without expectation in a pictorially structural way.

The production of the workings did not have a solid schedule. If this allowed me to describe some ambiguous "description" formulated with a single motive, it might be interesting.
