This is a catalogue of chinese painter, Zhang Xiaotao, featuring a compilation of essays written on his artistic development in the period 1998-2004. Interviews with the artist,
artist biography and artist statement are included. On one hand he makes use of vulgar and popular images, both ancient and modern and on the other hand, he tries to make them free from the "plane" narrative logic so as to help those images into a contradictory and dramatic state and bring about a new socialized meaning. The artist says, "Sometimes I feel like a grain of sand, an ant, a dead rat, decaying stinking garbage. In my paintings those small parts of human existence I want to show: the angst, the insignificance, the composition, the stress.", English/ Chinese, Year2005, Illust. B/W154, Illust.
