Of all the iconic subjects popularized by contemporary Chinese art, none is more unexpected than Zhou Chunya's green dog. Concerned less about subject and more about direct expression of emotion, Zhou Chunya paints his dog with no intention of sending a message or defining a culture or style. Using vivid colors, high contrast and a loose, expressionistic painting style, the artist gives his subject anthropomorphic qualities: the dog's open mouth as much a giant welcoming smile as threatening snarl. Each Green Dog painting is very personal and individual; the artist hopes to transcend existing knowledge of his work to let his dogs speak for themselves.
