Two bears sit quietly together going through a tub of laundry. "The mundane tasks in life are the most spirited places of laugher and companionship," states artist Ziui Vance. "The subtle whispers across dirty laundry are ruffled by laughter as a crisp breeze flutters applause from drying sheets. The banality of life is refreshingly fun when you give space to share it with a friend." Ziui's work commonly reflects on everyday life scenes, encompassing a wide range of domestic contexts. Her depictions of the familiar teddy bear range from working in the home to traditional activities plying at the artisanal history of trades. Her ability to cleverly capture the tone and color of a Golden Age of painting illustrates great charm and the life and times of a distant contemporary life. The artwork is in a metal frame.

Ziui Vance

Philadephia, Pennsylvania

Ziui Vance is a Chinese artist based in the United States 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 the University of Michigan.
