Xiu-Qin Zhang’s Creative Philosophy

The use of cloth collages triggers a chain reaction of shapes, affects the consciousness, and leads to associations, just like the creation of abstract art, discovering space wave after wave, and then opening up space…
The space I have created is mainly based on the combination of human body shapes. They meet unexpectedly and connect together for no apparent reason, which produces the effect of “connecting form and meaning”, which makes me endlessly imagined. Picasso has a famous saying: “Art creation is not exploration, but discovery.” The art of cloth just provides me with endless space for imagination. In the shape, color and line of countless floral cloths, it leads me to constantly discover and explore. Searching for and catching chance brings me infinite creative inspiration.

These floral cloths seem to be able to speak, one by one telling different stories and different life experiences, and all kinds of ups and downs are expressed in the paintings. My mentor often said: “My heart is the universe”, this sentence has deeply influenced me, and now my creative path is free and free, and I no longer rely on natural objects (reproduction of nature), but capture the needs of the soul and give myself To have one more spiritual window with the viewer, this is my concept of creation.
