Part of artist Yangzi Xu's series Winter, LaSalle Street depicting a cold winter day in Chicago with a north-facing view of the bridge. "The painting captures a fleeting moment of passing the iconic bridge houses and Reid Murdoch building," says Yangzi. "I am fascinated by the snow-covered ground and icy river. They contrast with the warm lights from the buildings in the background, and that creates an almost festive feeling."

Artist Yangzi Xu captures a nostalgia for Chicago and its dramatic seasonal changes in her expressionist cityscapes. Having a full-time job and being a wife and mother, Yangzi makes a habit of painting everyday to keep her passion exciting and fresh. She keeps a queue of ideas and reference photos that she takes throughout the year. She looks through her references, tweaks and adds elements to them. Once inspiration strikes, Yangzi draws several sketches and begins to work with oils on canvas on multiple pieces at once - to keep each painting spontaneous and new. "I try to capture the paradox of life in the city, where one can be in a crowd and yet feel alone," Yangzi says. "My main intent is not to capture the physical reality of a scene, but to express my own moods and feelings to my audience." In her free time, Yangzi enjoys reading, with her current favorite genres being biographies and memoirs. Yangzi is an alumnus of DePaul University in Chicago.
