Artists Showplace in Dallas, Texas, is overjoyed to currently be hosting an exhibition of large-scale watercolor works by an accomplished Chinese master. You won’t believe how beautiful they are.
Watercolor is a painting medium that seems perfectly designed for capturing fleeting moments or impressions. Whether an old man caught in a moment or the drifting reflections of light on water, Chinese master Stephen Zhang seems to capture it all during his latest solo exhibition in Dallas this month.
On view now through March 4, “Flow” presents a number of Zhang’s large-scale watercolors with a diverse range of subjects. Zhang grew up in China, and his style and creative process are very much influenced by traditional Eastern watercolor. Even so, the artist’s works are also informed by contemporary arts. Via the gallery, “In his large-scale watercolors, artist and creative director Stephen Zhang freezes fleeting moments: an old man caught in the moment or intriguing light deep in the forest. On the subtle level, Zhang hints at the grave concern that the current state of nature may change permanently, and he builds the portraits with layers of stories and emotions.”
