Zhou Brothers : Waterlily Pond of Life

Like the detritus left in a parking lot after one helluva party.

Kind of random -- kind of not

Kind of yin -- kind of yang

Kind of delicate - kind of brutal

Kind of beautiful --- kind of ugly

Kind of traditional  -- -kind of contemporary

I'd like to have this pattern on a shirt.

These two larger pieces are less enjoyable

Water Lily 2, 1976

Here's their Water Lily series from 40 years ago  -- much more dynamic

Xugu (1824-1896)

Wisteria and Goldfish (detail)

Here's a Chinese pond scene from the late 19th Century.

100% beautiful.
