An exhibit by Tong Zhang comprised of watercolor paintings is currently on display in the Biblio Gallery on the 4th floor of Bird Library. Zhang is an MFA candidate in the Painting program at the College of Visual and Performing Arts.
In describing the exhibition, Zhang says:
I am defined by moments. They are like mysterious energies flowing around me, which makes my ordinary life full of potential of being sublime, and opens a new way of looking that triggers a sense of curiosity and wonderment to real life. The daily world to me is saturated with effects. Sometimes it might be sufficient to isolate motifs in the everyday that are so basic that they capture basic emotions. I am curious what has happened and what I was missing at the moments, because I believe there is always a space to realize the emotional potential.
The exhibit will be on display through mid-February 2018.
