This is the first in a series of books to be published by Ink Studio, focusing on Chinese ink art. Each of the essays in this volume takes a different approach to illuminating Zheng Chongbin's art. They discuss Zheng's developmental process as his visual language dialectically evolves; the role of American Abstract Expressionism on his approach to abstraction; Zheng's deconstruction of the old visual language of ink painting while preserving its prime criterion of qiyun; his construction of a new 'Ink Language System' by relating contemporary art concepts to the classical ink language; and his explication of his own artistic practice, illustrating how China's classical art theory can be changed to meet the needs of contemporary ink artists and artists in general.
Includes a timeline and a biograohy of Zheng, a bibliography, an index and plates.
