  • Zhang Wei's latest solo exhibition "Invisible Forms" shows his latest works, separated from concrete form and representational expression. The overall tone of the works on show is soft, light, and there is always this unique tension generated from the strict arrangement of the painting and randomly generated texture on the surface. In the new works, there is also a breakthrough in the arrangement of the painting, Zhang dispelled the only central object of the tableau. The viewer’s way of observing the painting is changed as Zhang moved the line of sight and his focal point to the periphery of the tableau. Moreover, the viewer achieves a different experience of appreciation when he or she observes the painting from diverse distance and angles.

In these paintings, the spiritual symbols are no longer abstract, they become real and vivid warriors walking through the history events in front of the viewers’ eyes."
