Zhan Rui pays more attention to rationality and controllability in his creations. He prefers to analyse and judge towards specific issues instead of relying on perception and contingency. From the visual level, Zhan Rui’s works could be regarded as the abstract, due to the appearance of his works with the layer of abstraction skin or shell. But he neither pays attention to the pure beauty of the abstract,nor the metaphysical assumption of the traditional abstraction. He is in fact interested only in the mechanism of production.

 

Zhan Rui was born in Wuhan, China in 1980. He graduated with a B.A. in Fine Art from Oil Painting Department, Hubei Institute of Fine Art in 2004. He finished his M.A. in Fine Art from Fine Art Department, University of the Arts in London in 2006. Currently, he lives and works in Wuhan.
