Zhou Rong

Zhou Rong was born in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province and graduated with a degree in printmaking from the Chinese Academy of Art in Hangzhou in 2014. Forgoing traditional objectification of nature-derived subjects in favor of a conceptual dialect, Zhou Rong’s surrealist works probe both changing gender roles and the mass urbanization rapidly reshaping Mainland China. In her ominous monochrome ink paintings, negative space is given equal credence as defined silhouette – positioning a psychological tension between viewer and subject. The artist currently lives and works in Hangzhou.
