William Shakespeare once stated that "the eyes are a window into the soul." In reality, my laughter is big. And my eyes reflect this.

Getting to Know Ziui

Ziui Vance is a Chinese artist based in Michigan who creates artworks in both acrylic and oil paint that capture her sensory experiences. Ziui grew up in China in a small secluded town surrounded by water; during this time, she learned to use vision and art as a means of escape and exploration. “As long as my eye can see, my hand can achieve,” she says. Her paintings grant access into her world of fantasy. She begins painting in the quiet of midnight, when her ears and eyes become more attuned to the finer details of her environment. Throughout her portfolio, she works in a range of styles. Her gestural abstracts evoke atmospheric paintings by Mark Rothko, while her colorful figurative work is reminiscent of Chinese contemporary artists Yue Minjun and Zhang Xiaogang. Her current body of work seeks to explore the host-and-guest relationship established when someone views a painting. Ziui has a BA in design from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China and an MFA in art from University of Michigan.
