Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

When facing a canvas, I am at the same time a viewer, a maker and a critic. Any hasty action will result in the failure of this game. My goal is not to solve these contradictions and arrive at a resolution (delete these characters from the picture), but to observe them.
Imagine this scene: the sheriff, the outlaw and the bounty hunter have a run in at the town center. They point guns at each other at the same time: the story ends here. We know neither who opened fire first nor who killed who. That instant of the picture does not seem to be about justice or triumphs, but rather like a set of still life, each character pinned down vividly and playing very hard their assigned roles. That moment is delightful.

Artist Profile

Born: 1985

Hometown: China

Based in: China

Fundamentally additive, Zhang Miao accepts contradictions and intentionally reintroduces elements and mediums that run counter to modernist taste. Compelled by Robert Venturi’s views on architecture, he embraces a complex, heterogenous art. To look at his work is to sense the contradictions he has fused; flat yet immersive, rational yet decorative, colorful yet sculptural, theatrical yet each work self-reliant. Various mediums are combined indiscriminately and then re-differentiated. The result is further combined and scrutinized again until concrete categories are dissolved and new insight is generated, releasing the art making process from the structure of medium until it verges on character creation. Zhang Miao lives and works in Beijing.
