After living in 3 continents, Betty Zhang’s work has evolved over the years, as she is influenced by many cultures. She now combines her fine art experiences with her design background. Her artwork draws a relation between emotion, culture, and experience. The texture in her artwork is a way to conserve the process; a process of making art, and a process of thought.
If walls could talk, they would say “Follow us.” In the modern society, we are surrounded by technology and social media as a new way of interaction. “Follow us” is a phrase often heard amongst many other new vocabularies as a result of this new social behaviour. In this interactive and immersive project, viewers are invited to have a conversation with the walls and follow them.
IWCT is an experiential illustration event that will be on public display at the Gladstone Hotel from March 6–30, 2014.
Curated by Leila Courey, IWCT is a juried exhibition of experiential illustration that features work by emerging and established artists. Selected projects use illustration—or other art forms related to it—to occupy or alter the hotel’s 2nd floor gallery and public spaces, in dramatic, conceptual, and experimental ways.
