Opening Reception for Guang-Yu Zhang: On Oriental Reveries
January 15 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us for the opening reception of On Oriental Reveries, a solo exhibition featuring works by Guang-Yu Zhang. On Oriental Reveries makes of the audience witnesses by way of tunnels and windows of the artist’s creation, his memories transforming beyond a surreal dreamscape. Guang-Yu Zhang instead brings one to a soothing world, a thrilling world, an Elysium where earth and sky intertwine, where light and darkness are one and the same.
Curated by Gabriel Torres and Andres J. Mora.
Guang-Yu Zhang is currently based in Shanghai, China. In 2012 He received his BFA from Central Saint Martin’s College of Arts and Design, London.
“I was living in both the UK and China, inspired by both Western and Oriental cultures, history and present. The source content of my works is traditional Oriental culture under the influence of classical Chinese culture as well as Western and European culture. In the works I place together individual elements from different times and backgrounds. To begin with it was purely experimental, allowing these elements from different cultures to be combined together. Actually, the background to this behavior reflects the environment in which I and other urban youth of China grew up. “
