Zihan Liang
Chicago, Illinois

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.”
