Tongwei Zhang (US)
The American artist Tongwei Zhang presents us with prints that are titled “petroglyphs”. The title is a direct reference to the source of the artist’s inspiration, the art of primitive cultures, which means: images or symbols often created by carving a rock surface. Bold black lines determine in his works the abstract composition and separate the bright colors. Zhang accepts the presence of the gesture when carving; this careless and impulsive movement seems to be a conscious choice. Zhang’s naive prints also reminisce of totems and sculptures that represent a close connection to nature.
