McClain Gallery presents "Look Into the Future," our first exhibition of Ping Zheng's (b.1989 in Zhejiang, China) work. The exhibition will be taking place online, although the works are available for viewing by appointment.

Zheng's oil stick on paper drawings are symbolic and lyrical landscapes, mysterious in their non-specificity. For Zheng, depicting nature brings joyous memories of feeling free in the outdoors. The bright colors are bolstered by the thick and deft application of layers of oil stick, which is sometimes scraped back in small areas to reveal colors previously applied. Her method is very physical and an extension of her energetic process - she creates a variety of rich textures: at times her vivid palette reads velvety soft, while other portions are scraped, ribbed, or striated.

"My inspiration is grounded in childhood memories of natural landscapes, where I felt free as a human in the outdoors, avoiding family pressures as being a girl at home... Art is about how you view the world and I always want to be creative with my artwork and genuine with my paradoxical thoughts, which is about the past and present in my life."

"I like spending a lot of time on processing and communicating with my artwork. I think this is how the subconscious mind brings me a particular focus on creativity, approaching art as a means of personal development. My passionate belief in equality, males and females are just part of this universe." - Ping Zheng
