The Liverpool Academy of Arts
InBetween - Recent works by Jill Zhang
An exhibition of paintings by Chinese artist Jill Zhang. Jill came to Liverpool three years ago from Henan in China via Dundee. She puts her life into her canvases by depicting two journeys, the first her travel across countries and cultures from Henan to Liverpool and the second the development of herself as a person, a mother and an artist over that time. The photographs of her work do not do them justice, her canvases are large (6ft x 6ft) and need to be seen to get the full impact and appreciate the fine detail.
Jill uses digital photography and the blending of images to create what is the digital equivalent of a sculptor's maquette. Using this as a basis she then painstakingly builds up the image putting layer on layer of oil paint onto canvas to produce a final translucent image which crosses time space and emotion.

The exhibititon opens to the public on the 12th November and will run to the 22nd November.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 12 til 4pm.
