MIRANDA FENGYUAN ZHANG
Miranda Fengyuan Zhang's fiber works exist at the border of abstraction and representation. She combines a free and formal approach to knitting and weaving, depicting semi-abstract landscapes and animal subjects that are mysterious yet familiar using leftover industrial threads from Chinese factories. Zhang’s trans-generational practice juxtaposes contemporary experience with tradition, harkening back to the origins of object-making and taking inspiration from her grandmother's practice of up-cycling old garments.
Miranda Fengyuan Zhang was born in Shanghai, China in 1993. She earned her BFA in studio art from NYU in 2016.
Solo exhibitions of her work have taken place at: Candice Madey with Chambers Gallery in New York City; Capsule Gallery in Shanghai, China; Halsey McKay Gallery in East Hampton, New York; and Half Gallery in Shanghai, China; among others.
Zhang has been the recipient of the La Maison de l’Art Contemporain residency in Asilah, Morocco.
