Guang-Yu Zhang: On Oriental Reveries

January 9 @ 1:00 pm - February 1 @ 5:00 pm

Free
The Contemporary Art Modern Project is pleased to announce our January exhibition, a solo show featuring works by Shanghai-based visual artist Guang-Yu Zhang.

Guang-Yu Zhang brings forth an elysian world ever-filled with mystified fauna and vegetation, finding inspiration in Western elements and merging it into his own Eastern techniques. The Chinese-born artist honors his roots by emulating the finishing of ink-based art in the portrayal of idealized expressive landscapes, flipping the script by incorporating the Westerner approach of occupying all available negative space with more saturated elements than is expected of Oriental art. Influenced by the technical teachings of his fine art training in the UK, he furthers this approach by integrating both painting and photography techniques.

 

Guang’s eclectic compositions convey a nostalgia driven by traditional Chinese motifs, motifs that conflate seamlessly with the artist’s eye for soft although striking color schemes. This choice of color sets him apart from the artistic crowd, presenting a diffusion of tones that yield sometimes dreamy and other times nightmarish qualities to his work, creating an immersive paradisiacal-yet-surreal realm that draws those who set eyes on the same. A soothing world, a thrilling world, an Elysium where earth and sky intertwine, where light and darkness are one and the same.
