Louise Zhang is a Chinese Australian artist based in Sydney, Australia.
She creates objects that are designed to allure and repel, depending on your proclivities, her paintings and sculptures could have either or both effects simultaneously.
Zhang’s paintings and painted sculptures are blob-like in form, slippery in texture and lurid in colour.
Video Interview with Louise Zhang
Their brightness and playfulness are striking and their ambivalent forms can be unnerving, in the same way that the wobble of jelly evokes terror in some.
In one sense Zhang’s works are entirely abstract they do not represent forms from the real world.
They are, however, representational in that their infinite mutability reflects that of the blob.
If ‘ the blob ’ can be defined as a real object, then Zhang’s works are not so abstract after all.
