Jasper Johns Flag (from Lead Reliefs Series), 1969

Jasper Johns Flag (from Lead Reliefs Series), 1969

Flag (from Lead Reliefs Series), 1969 Lead 17 x 23 in. (43.2 x 58.4 cm.) Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, TX Since the beginning of his career in the mid-1950s, Jasper Johns has been concerned with what he has called “things the mind already knows”—everyday images and objects, such as the American flag or a light bulb, so familiar that we scarcely truly see them anymore. Having established a range of such subjects, Johns has often returned to them to explore how they change when represented in different media. In this series of embossed lead reliefs, the artist revisited some of the themes of his past paintings and sculptures; Flag, for example, originates from a 1960 cast relief inspired by the tactile brushwork of his wax-based encaustic painted versions of the subject.

Zao Wou-Ki

Zao Wou-Ki

Zao, who hardly needs an introduction and whose name elicits admiration and respect, is the first and only Chinese artist to establish himself on the international art scene. Proof of this is that Zao is the only Chinese artist mentioned in H.H. Arnason's widely acclaimed book History of Modern Art. Zao, who has been living in Paris for over 40 years, was recently awarded the Grand Croix de la Lagion d'Honneur by the French Cultural Minister. Zao also celebrates a retrospective exhibition in the Taipei Fine Art Museum this year from March to May.
