Jingyu Zhang

By depicting and exaggerating the comedic aspects attached to life in our contemporary era, Zhang’s satirical drawings and paintings explore themes of impermanence. Zhang invites audiences to question the knowledge systems and worldviews they hail from, to acknowledge their changing perceptions of desire, happiness, pain, fear, confusion and freedom, to reflect on the connections between the visible and the invisible, to think about the concrete causes, effects and values of thoughts and actions, and more importantly to experience the feeling of impermanence.
