Feng Zhengjie is clearly one of the most important Chinese contemporary artists working today. While the subjects are not always feminine, it is these portraits of the supremely self confident, young, powerful Chinese woman for which he is best known.

Exhibit A is thrilled to publish some of his first silkscreen print editions here in the United States. All three are superb examples of his haunting, unmistakable work. In the case of No. 26, our ethereal beauty parts her lips as if to speak a word of invitation, a word of introduction or perhaps declination. Whatever the choice, it is she who is in complete control of the visual communication. Portraits No. 38 and 53 up the ante with their refined energy and formal beauty.

Adoring critics of Feng Zhengjie may comment upon his work in terms of the extent to which it leans toward high art or popular culture or of more esoteric considerations, but there can be no doubt that his singular, luscious palette and iconography present as compelling a body of portraiture as any we have seen in America or anywhere else - ever. It is this test of the artist; his ability to create work so utterly compelling and memorable (with impeccable technique) that renders more formal, academic analysis almost superfluous. For it is the direct, overarching beauty of Feng Zhengjie's work that says everything we need to know.
