Lao Lianben (b. 1948)
91.4 x 50.8 cm (36 x 20 in)
Simultaneously quiet and dramatic, Lao Lianben creates meditative work that feels transcendent of the physical, reaching far beyond the constraints of a canvas. A mass of heavily impastoed black, thick and textured, brings a breathtaking intensity to an otherwise clean white background, while hints of sienna emerge along its edges, almost as if something has been burned away.
