Zhu Lan’s most recent body of work combines her trademark explorations of abstraction and surface texture with an innovative new splash of colour. Previously, her work focused on varying degrees of black and white expressionistic marks, which are now accompanied by a bold and striking use of red. Building on the traditions of techniques learned through the study of painting in China and Japan,

Zhu Lan’s latest paintings fuse her trademark rhythmic tranquility with an almost violent and passionate streak. The result is something elegantly experimental, as she merges serenity and fury. In discussing her work, Zhu Lan has compared the act of painting to a personal spiritual exploration of the senses. With the new inclusion of red, this exploration takes on a new meaning to the viewer, as the bold colour can signify excitement, passion and perhaps more.

On a more formal level, the red blobs and slashes recall early Modernist painting and bring to mind Western conventions, which mixed with Asian influences, create works that are true to Zhu Lan’s mixed roots. In 2006, Zhu Lan stated that her aim was to continue to merge her international sources of inspiration and to create work that reflects her Canadian influences and the artistic legacies of her adopted homeland. This most recent series of paintings is a testament to that desire, as she has moved on to a new level of expression, all hinging on this new and bold use of the colour red. [Extract]

“My work is diverse. Predominantly I work in the field of abstract expressionism. The foundation of my work comes from an intensive study of the ‘nude’ and although the formal representation of the figure has completely vanished from my practice, there is an underlying system or structure that has it’s roots in the abstraction of the human form. I rarely plan or rehearse a piece, working intuitively I allow an image to evolve naturally, to have a life of its own. I am interested in the idea that when something is destroyed another is simultaneously created, as in reincarnation or rebirth. I often use surfaces that have previously been worked on, rather than a blank canvas, I react to existing marks or images. Working in this way produces results that I could not plan for or even imagine, and it is important that the ingredient which attracted me in the first instance is not completely lost but given a new life. Often I leave some of the original elements to pay respect to its contribution.” Jai Llewellyn : Artist Statement

“From the brush, a touch and the surfaces vibrate in unstable fragile balances, stability is present. The subject is fluid, light and undulating, also ponderous and determined. Bridges suspended, breaking the space, different and uncertain perspectives, carry the rhythms and the emotions. The perceptible tension of the work is its justification. The painter, deeply involved in the choice of the contrasting values of black and white, is looking for plural dimensions. These confrontations put forward express explosions, reconciliations, the meeting of vital forces. Black and white is the absolute confrontation, from the interior of which is it not possible to express the chaos of life?” – Marie-Christine Jodier
