Hong Chun Zhang
Hong Chun Zhang was born in 1971 Shenyang, Liaoning province during Chinese Cultural Revolution. She began her professional art training at the age of 15 when she attended the attached high school for Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing from 1986-1990. After high school graduation, she spent the next four years studying in Chinese Ink Painting as a college student at CAFA and earned her BFA degree in 1994. In 1996, Zhang came to the United States to continue her education in visual art and received a MFA degree in Studio Art at the University of California, Davis in 2004. Through her academic and professional training in China and the United States, Zhang has developed a solid foundation in both Chinese and American cultural and artistic skills. She combines traditional techniques with modern concepts and draws from her own experiences and observations in China as well as the United States. Zhang’s signature work is large scale, detailed black and white charcoal drawing of disembodied hair based on her identity as a Chinese American woman.
Hong Chun Zhang’s work has been collected and exhibited in North America, Asia and Europe at prestigious venues including the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, China National Art Museum in Beijing, Contemporary Museum of Art Norway in Oslo and the Utrecht Central Museum in the Netherlands. Her work is also in regional public collections of the Spencer Museum of Art at University of Kansas and The Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University as well as in international private collections on contemporary Chinese art such as DSL collection in Paris, France, White Rabbit gallery in Sydney, Australia, and The Ink Studio of Contemporary Chinese Ink Art Collection in Beijing. Moreover, Hong has received awards for her work including the Dedalus Foundation MFA Fellowship, the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture Artist Residency Full Scholarship. She currently resides and works in Lawrence, Kansas.
Kuang-Yu Tsui has been trying to respond to the adaptation relation between human and the society from a biological point of view. He also attempts to redefine or question the matrix of the institution we inhabit through different actions and experiments that ignore the accustomed norm. In doing so, the artist has developed new means to adapt to the environment and redefine reality. His action can be regarded as a medium, or a parameter, to gauge social tolerance. Also an attempt to show relationships in the present institution and the relation between man and his environment, Kuang-Yu’s repetitive body experiments accent the absurdity of the social values and reality that people have grown accustomed to. He was born in Taipei, Taiwan in 1974. In 1997 he graduated from National Institute of the Arts and has exhibited internationally since, including Venice Biennale, Liverpool Biennale, Reina Sofia Museum, Chelsea Art Museum, Mori Museum, OK Centrum.
