Part of a series of expressionist portraits of passerby on the street. Zihan says the work is about portraying the time that is about to pass. "When snow turns into rain, winter goes to spring, many of us walk past each other. Within the time and space we briefly intersect, there are always hints of a beautiful story ready to be told, or a lingering impression waiting to be reawakened."

Zihan Liang

Dongguan, China

Zihan Liang is currently pursuing her degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. As a student, she has experienced a shift in her approach to painting, migrating from a representational style to a more abstract, conceptual frame of mind. Inspired by what she examines and experiences within her metropolitan surroundings, Zihan’s work is a combination of architectural subject matter and an abstract expressionist style. The energetic brushwork, color, and sense of discovery provide a strong sense of emotion in the work. The paintings have a raw enthusiasm combined with a sense of conflict that only a young artist’s work can channel. They capture the critical, defining point of transformation in an artist’s oeuvre, in the midst of experimentation and search for one’s aesthetic individuality. Zihan starts a painting by depicting a place that is significant to her, and then relies on her her memory and intuition to capture an atmospheric quality. As she puts it, “these spaces, forms and objects do not stand purely on their own, but are coated by my judgments.”

Thank you for your inquiry about Zihan's work! You've made a lovely choice! Since the piece is on paper, I would recommend framing it under glass or plexiglass. Most frame shops offer a Museum Glass option which has incredible clarity and great UV protection. If you are worried about potential glare coming from glass or plexi, the Museum Glass option could be a good choice. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions! -Samantha at UGallery

Hi. Do you recommend this be framed under glass, or could it be floated without glass? Thanks, Stephanie
