Mark Bradford: Tears of a Tree @ Rockbund Art Museum
Coming across old colonial era maps of Shanghai at a local market, the celebrated Los Angeles-based artist Mark Bradford became interested in the partitioning of the city during the international zone period; the changes to the Chinese address system under the imposed Japanese system; as well as the pre-industrialization landscape of the city—in other words, the mapping and remapping of the city, and the molding and remolding of the physical landscape over many decades. The new paintings titled The Tears of a Tree, Falling Horses and Lazy Mountain are informed by this context, and the massive change in the urban landscape that he witnessed in the two visits he made over the last five years.
