ART OPENING “Ping Zheng | Nature’s Canopy” at Seven Sisters Gallery

April 20 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

ON VIEW APRIL 20 – MAY 18, 2024: “Ping Zheng | Nature’s Canopy” at Seven Sisters Gallery is a  hypnotically radiating journey through sunlit valleys, hills, cascading waterfalls, and into the night sky featured in the artist’s recent works rendered in oil stick on paper. Her rich and colorful textures and layered patterns are inspired by landscapes from her travels across the United States, Europe, and China. The exhibition features a salon-style grouping that introduces the vibrancy of Zheng’s symbolic universe, from the serenity of a moonlit field of flowers to cinematic shifts in seasons and daylight.

Her solitary journeying was initially a way to create refuge out of an oppressive childhood in China but evolved into a means to evade the entrapments of our impersonal digital world. She also cites artists that orbit many centuries and geographies who too made work that merge their experiences of the natural world with a special blend of personalized spiritualism. Her sources are wide-ranging and span ancient Chinese landscape painting as well as 20th- and 21st-century visionary abstractionists like Hilma af Klint, Agnes Pelton, Georgia O’Keeffe, Judy Chicago, Matthew Wong, Joseph E. Yoakum, and Takako Yamaguchi.
