Miranda Fengyuan Zhang: Scattered Lines
June 2, 2021 – July 3, 2021
CANDICE MADEY and CHAMBERS FINE ART are pleased to introduce a solo exhibition of Miranda Fengyuan Zhang, Scattered Lines, marking the New York and Shanghai-based artist’s first in New York City. The exhibition will take place at CANDICE MADEY and presents work in fiber that are uniquely influenced by cross-cultural painting traditions–Chinese calligraphy and classical landscape painting, traditional oil painting of the Renaissance, and early 20th century abstraction.
The title of the exhibition, Scattered Lines, refers to the structures inherent to Zhang’s material and process, and her contradicting desires to both disrupt and connect with history and tradition.
Miranda Fengyuan Zhang was born in Shanghai, China in 1993. She earned her BFA in studio art from NYU in 2016 and she was the recipient of the La Maison de l’Art Contemporain residency in Asilah, Morocco.
