Very interesting. There were moments in the current Asian Art Museum show of contemporary Chinese painting when Ciwt could have sworn she was back at MOMA in the 1960's.  But in achieving similar images with similar media, the Abstract Expressionists were coming from entirely different philosophies and making entirely different artistic statements from the young Chinese artists in the show.     To be continued.....
