Xinyu Zhang
Tucson, Arizona

 The acrylic paintings of Xinyu Zhang start as a design on a computer. She pays special attention to composition, color, shadows and layer. On the computer, she works on an idea until she feels satisfied. She then prints the sketch and paints it on her canvas. Through this process, her paintings become related to graphic design, which is her current field of work when she's not making art. Fun fact: she once wrote a column for a Chinese newspaper, and has received her law degree.

Comments About This Piece

Chinese classic poems and ancient paintings are my inspirations for this piece. I am also influenced by Miro and Kandinsky. My painting process involves a lot of waiting and watching. I paint the first layer with light grey ink and I let it stand there to dry for days. Meanwhile I watch and think about the second layer. I paint the second layer with dark black ink. Then the same process happens again - waiting, watching, and thinking about third layer, which is to add colors to the piece. The last step is to mount the rice paper onto a mat board.
