Lot Essay

"Thinking about Chinese painters from the past, it is clear to me that they painted trees and rocks from life. Day after day, I walk past some tree, they are a familiar presence; for me, to paint a tree is the same as to make someone's portrait: each tree is different and has its own individual features." - Zhang Enli
