Paintings by Zhong Biao from contemporary Chinese art gallery Art Scene China. The gallery is dedicated to established and up-and-coming Chinese artsits, with locations in Shanghai and Beijing.
An article on the site about Zhong’s work says:
“As a sensitive artist, Zhong Biao has captured the pulse of China’s social reforms through the visual symbols Chinese people are familiar with. He takes the visual experiences of an era as the image source of his works, including sculpture and china representing China’s past glories, the labor models of the Cultural Revolution, and such symbols of modern life as McDonalds and Boeing aircrafts…
Zhong Biao’s work is similar to the “knowledge archeology” described by Facult Michael. In “visual archeology” similar to “knowledge archeology,” he cuts a section from the visual symbols people are familiar with, then takes out those fragmented symbols from the cultural deposits of different times, and last arranges and combines them in a unique way. What he wants is not to show the meaning of symbols themselves, but to reveal the changing meanings of the images through setting up peculiar scenes.”
