Zeng Chuanxing

  1. 1. ZENG CHUANXING http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/michaelasanda-1191140-zeng-chuanxing/
  2. 2. Zeng Chuanxing was born in Longchang County, Sichuan Province in 1974. His realist paintings depict young, beautiful minority girls and women and reflect both a return to classicism and a subtle, yet poignant commentary on the effects of the Cultural Revolution and the influence of Western society on modern day China. Having been born and raised in a minority nationality region, he is heavily influenced by local conditions and customs.  In his ongoing series of Paper Brides, Zeng comments on the fragility and uncertainty of marriage in the post-Mao and post-Cultural Revolution era. 
  3. 16. Traditionally the Chinese marriage was strictly arranged, and the possibility or even thought of divorce was forbidden.  Following Chairman Mao’s encouragement of a somewhat more equal division of responsibilities and duties between male and female, and the influx of Western life and ideology, the traditional, stalwart bond of marriage suddenly evolved into an uncertain union.  Zeng’s quiet and melodic figures, draped in delicate paper gowns, represent the fragility of this once impenetrable bond and reflect the often melancholic and insecure state he sees in the new generation of Chinese women.
