Jingyu Zhang: Big Thousand World


Jingyu Zhang: Big Thousand World

February 2 - 12, 2021
FAB Gallery
Admission is free and by appointment only. Please see Ticket Information for details.

Jingyu Zhang's work explores themes of consumption and materialism in human life by depicting and exaggerating the comedic aspects of mundane activities.

Zhang offers a dark reflection of being human in a shared reality by encountering imaginary things we are afraid of, and exploring them instead of running from them.

"Through my studio practice I’ve accepted fear and rebuilt reality, to explore hidden meanings throughout life without spoiling the beauty of unknowing. If experiencing my artwork makes the audience recalibrate their views of reality and life, my goal is achieved."
~Jingyu Zhang

This is the final visual presentation for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Painting.
