Xu Zhen (Made ln Company) 徐震

Under Heaven

2014

60 cm (h) x 80 cm (l)

Mixed media on canvas

This series, the title of which is a joking reference to Jeff Koons’ infamous Made in Heaven series, made waves for Xu Zhen. These impasto works are an example of Xu’s provocative humor, providing a wry commentary on the values of the contemporary art world, where dazzling effect triumphs over substance. 
This Under Heaven artwork is a lavishly overdecorated cake-canvas, smothered with thick blobs of paint squeezed directly from an icing bag. The technique arose from playful experiment, but the swirling pattern suggests cityscapes and landscapes seen from the perspective of the gods.
