Another piece from Sheng Xiao’s irreverent Blank series, IX balances its minimalist composition with a uniquely angular sense of geometry and space. The Blank series is Sheng Xiao’s most ambitious works to date.

Using nothing but color and composition, Sheng pursues the purest relationship between emotion and imagery. How does it make you feel?
