What the Gallery Says: “Wanxin Zhang was born in ChangChun, China, and spent his formative childhood years under Mao’s regime during the 1960’s and 1970’s. He was part of the first young generation to receive a formal art education in college after the Cultural Revolution ended in 1976, graduating in 1985 from the Sculpture program from the LuXun Academy of Fine Art. Zhang relocated to California in 1992.”
Why It’s Worth a Look: Drawing on both the lore and history of his native China and Bay Area funk art, Zhang’s edgy and accomplished new ceramics are full of surprising details and enigmatic flourishes.
