For ZHANG Enli, painting itself is a vital activity, whether his brushes are illustrating human activities or everyday objects.As a painter who depicts the elements of daily life, ZHANG devotes the same attention and passion into every object, whether it is a bucket, a wardrobe or a person. Each painting is not only a re-presentation but an expression as well. In his series of ‘Space Paintings’ ZHANG focuses on the artistic language of painting, and works directly on to the walls to create an immersive and nostalgic environment. Removed objects are often featured by the traces they have left in the space, encouraging the viewer to reflect and visualize upon the ‘existence’ and ‘nothingness’ within the work.
