Yusi Zang

Curated by
Emma Nixon


Viewing her canvas of the back side of a canvas isn’t an open invitation or direct gawking into realities grey matter but a standoff with Yusi Zang herself where she has the perennially fastest draw. With some serious squinting; even a face or cryptic complexion can be made out of the work. It is a simple opposition that risks perpetuating those weary lines of ‘you are your art’, or that a paintings stylistic ingenuity is stronger than the themes it alludes to– but I believe that is the ultimate comedy of ‘Flattened’; that none of these works are timeless; that “our sense of the familiar” is never actual overthrown as promised and we stand puzzled and conned still searching for the illusive ‘world hidden underneath’.
