Zhang Huan, "Poppy Fields"
Although based on Buddhist masks and other motifs, the Chinese artist's densely painted allover compositions are meant to evoke a hallucinatory state of mind that he associates with two developments in his country's history: foreigner-imposed opium consumption during the 19th century, and Mao's Cultural Revolution of the 1960s.
