Liz Zhang works in painting, printmaking, and textiles. Her work is often characterized by scenes of figures or the spaces those figures might inhabit, through which she explores exclusion, alliance, isolation, and coexistence. She is interested in stripping down recognizable language systems - the gestural language of the body, the utilitarian language of human-made environments, and the didactic language of instruction manuals. By creating incomplete narratives and discontinuous sequences, she hopes to subtly signal a crucial disappearance or change in fortune.
