Lian Zhang
Lian Zhang is a London-based painter who creates Surrealist-tinged artworks: pots are adorned with human faces, a disembodied hand emerges from the sky to water a plant. Through the collection and combination of images with various spatiotemporal aspects, Zhang transforms quotidian life into scenes with multiple narrative threads that straddle reality and the otherworldly. Her fluid subject matter is echoed in her soft brushstrokes, while her vivid color palette draws viewers in.
