Zhang’s dark watercolor paintings serve to “contextualize a moment of awareness that transforms phenomena into mental energy, in which the normal ways of behaving, rules, and laws no longer apply. Lived experience has been shifted to an awareness that the familiar part is disappearing and unknowing is left.” These atmospheric paintings often “isolate motifs in the every day.”
