Christopher Zhang: Images of Tibet

24 Oct – 15 Nov 2008
In this solo exhibition, Zhang seeks to explore the religious and sociological implications of a society sheltered from the modern world. In his lush images of Tibetan culture, Zhang captures the spirit of a country immersed in ancient traditions. Inspired by the realist schools of nineteenth century Russia and Western Europe, Zhang experiments with both highly-rendered narratives and impressionistic portraits and architecture. Cognizant of the Tibetan relationship between nature and religion, Zhang captures both ceremony and landscape, often at times in harmony with one another. “Images of Tibet” reveals not only the unchanged scenery of an ancient country, but also the gentle beauty and perseverance of its people.
