15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Xiaowei Zhao

China

My art works concerned with physical and mental status of lives. Relying on realism, and incorporated with contemporaneity, modern life circumstances were reflected, with a focus on relationship between human and human, human and nature, inheritances and conflicts of contemporary and tradition, and interpretation of beauty associated with present-day society. Purist painting expressions were aspired.

Chinese classical and ethnical culture is appreciated in my work. Elements of Chinese traditional ethnic were placed in a modern environment. Culture and art from other ethnics were also borrowed to obtain a better interpretation of inheritances and conflicts. Young lady figures within a contemporary natural and humanistic environment, were served as a metaphor of current era and present surroundings, reflecting metropolitan cultural environments and convey visual artistic conceptions.
