Wanxin Zhang: New Work

San Francisco artist Wanxin Zhang’s new works will come to Turner Carroll this summer! We are very pleased to be the first gallery to present Zhang’s works this year. His work is indicative of China’s new emerging consciousness, respectful of tradition and sympathetic to intellectual curiosity. As an artist who grew up in Manchuria, Zhang has experienced a long journey to get to California.
He has a strong academic foundation that was developed from a young age in China. Once Zhang was introduced to the California Funk Art Movement, his pieces began developing dynamically; now, his larger than life sculptures combine both historical references and contemporary scenes to carry social and political messages.

With a sense of humor incorporated into his art, Zhang’s art is powerful, beautiful, and very spiritual. Zhang is one of the leading sculptors in the new generation of ceramic artists in California.

Opening Reception Friday, June 21, 2013 from 5 to 7pm
