Zhou Li’s lyrical abstract paintings capture her acute sensory observations of the world: lightness and shadow, solidity and dissolution, the sense of being. Building upon the history of European painting and the central tenets of traditional Chinese art, the Shenzhen-based artist harnesses both traditions to develop a distinct painterly language. Her free-flowing charcoal lines intersect with circles of paint in a gauzy, gossamer palette.
Organized in three sections, this publication presents three pivotal bodies of work. Lost in Green, created in the unique year of 2020, turns our attention to the elemental shifts of spring, harnessing its powerful symbolism of flux and regeneration. Tracing The Peach Blossom Spring uses color as a healing force and tool for self-reflection, expressing emotional journeys in response to life cycles of birth and grief. Water and Dreams focuses on the universal motif of water, drawing upon its rich cultural symbolism and complex representations throughout art history, religion and mythology. Insightful and poetic texts and a distinctive thematic colorway respond to each body of work.

ZHOU LI (*1969, Hunan, China) creates paintings, sculptures, installations and public art using mixed media, including oil paint, washes of ink, charcoal and cotton cloth. After graduating from the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in 1991, the artist spent eight years living in Paris, and eventually returned to China in 2003. Zhou Li has been the subject of critically acclaimed museum shows across China.
