Lot Essay

"We can 'read' his gestures with the brush as mountains or clouds, as waves, as the cosmic swirl of Chaos at the beginning of the world—visionary forms, forever appearing and dissolving before our eyes. As those dragons in the Zen paintings by master Chen Rong from Song Dynasty, such mysterious empire inhabits the images by Chu between the form and the formless, the temporal and the eternal." --Michael Sullivan
