Blessings, published concurrently with exhibitions of Zhang Huan’s work across two of Pace’s New York galleries in 2008, provides color images, including detail shots and installation views, of the artist’s celebrated ash paintings, Memory Door series, and the monumental sculpture Giant No. 3.

The work is discussed in an essay by Daniel Kunitz and in collected statements by Zhang, whose name is die-cut on the book’s wooden cover.

I use ash to express and combine all the dreams, aspirations, all the spiritual longings, all the ideas that people have somehow infused into incense ash.

To utilize other artists and people to be part of my painting, is just something very natural. I'm limited with one brain, two hands, and if I can combine millions of hands together…I can create better work.
