Artists Ai Xiangzhou and Zhang Yirong: One with the Universe
Why We Recommend it
This is a joint exhibition of two young ink artists, Tai Xiangzhou and Zhang Yirong, featuring ethereal landscapes and meticulous flower paintings.
Although working side by side in their respective studios in Beijing, the scholarly husband and wife team have developed their distinct pictorial language.
Tai’s masculine paintings of barren landscapes are composed of misty monochromatic shades of grey leading us to question whether we see the whole picture or only a microcosm of the whole Universe.
By contrast, Zhang’s feminine black & white paintings of different flowers and butterflies are depicted in fine delicate lines conveying an inner strength and beauty.
With this new body of work, they seek to explore the relationship between heaven and earth.
