Wanxin Zhang

Wanxin and his exhibition here at Turner Carroll received notice as a Watchlist Artist in the August 2013 edition of ArtSlant. Wanxin takes as his starting point the Yuan tomb warriors: thousands of actual-faced, terra cotta soldiers buried with China’s first emporer in 210 B.C. Bringing them forward in time, Wanxin’s terra cotta figures are stripped of weapons, and given more modern accoutrements, suggesting a dialogue between China and the viewer.
