Executed in 1970, Zen was created in the last decade of the artist’s life, when his abstract style was continuing to evolve. Zen is an exemplary example of Lui’s wet style, where he sprinkled water drops and diluted ink and colour on the surface of the painting in an unrestrained manner. Lui’s abstract Zen paintings always represent a universal theme – the lotus, which symbolises eternity, purity and Buddhahood. His wet style painting is complex, transparent and fervently energetic; it expresses the artist’s emotion at its most complex. With diluted ink applied in various types of brushstrokes, the red lotus petals and their reflection scattered in the horizon and unite the lotus, its leaves, and the lotus pond into one expression, which welcomes viewers to meditate upon Lui’s lifelong pursuit of Zen.
