Zhao Nengzhi's paintings are focused on the extraordinary portrayal of anonymous people's faces. Depending on how you look at them, the faces seem to be in a state either of genesis or decomposition. Taking into account the titles of the works, it seems that the artist wants to create a catalogue of facial expressions with his paintings. The artist doesn't just work in grey, but also in bright purple or green.
