Zhang Enli’s majestic reflections on ‘The Garden’ is an unapologetic invitation into a world of beauty. Hazy washes of velvety browns, yellows, and mossy greens give way to feathery amorphous forms, delicate tendrils and clusters of flora. Zhang’s deliberate painting style borrows heavily from Traditional Chinese Painting and the inspiration for his newest body of work may well be the classical gardens of Shanghai. But the tightly cropped perspective and big intimacy of his work, owe a substantial debt to the muscularity of Abstract Expressionism and Jungian psychology. Luminescent color, a reverence for the sublime and unwavering gestural confidence materially embody the life-force of nature itself. As Thomas More once aptly observed, “The soul cannot thrive in the absence of a garden. If you don’t want paradise, you are not human; and if you are not human, you don’t have a soul.” At Hauser & Wirth through April 7.
