Biennale: Spotlight on Chinese Painting

I'm going to try to pass along some of the amazing Chinese painting which I found to be virtuoso painting whether I liked the content or not. And the subject matter was different than what I usually see at galleries. They also had a film running that was the history of Chinese participation in the biennale which is 13 years. The film was fascinating because they interviewed by year some of the artists and curators (each national pavilion has a curator from its country) who participated. Seeing each of these artists who told of how hard it was to keep painting when there was governmental opposition and no outside market for Chinese art was moving. However now they are seated in their enormous studios with huge works in the background so clearly participation in the biennale and the art market acceptance has benefitted them enormously.
Almost all their work is Huge. And past that there's no categorization, at leadt to an outsider Realism,fantasy,abstraction and not so much conceptual art.
So here are some of the paintings
