Ziyun Zhang

"Throughout my paintings, I am trying to express an understanding of the sense of existence. In my opinion, an individual’s sense of existence comes from the integration and interaction, or disjunction, of his/her conscious and unconscious levels.

'As a new generation, the circumstance of our living has been about getting a change in a new social background. Our generation does not have heart-quaking life experience as those who experienced large-scale historical upheavals. Compared with them, our surroundings, from society and the empirical experience around us seem to quickly change and evolve in a peaceful and stable way. However, they evolve faster and faster meaning that it is harder to achieve a sense of an individual existence among the myriad of interactions and relationships (with both objects and people) that characterise our present. The individual is distorted or hidden within the deepest and most obscure sides of our subconscious."
