Fingerprint Series by Zhang Yu

Chinese artist Zhang Yu has been working on his Fingerprint Series, in intervals, since the early 1990s. These paintings become a meditative process by repeatedly pressing his right index finger on rice paper with ink. Zhang limits his colors to shades of red, white and black, leaving thousands of overlapping fingerprints that create a unique infinite visual effect. He has created paintings, installations, books and performances with this process, making him a key figure in contemporary experimental ink painting. | via collabcubed |
