Tianyue Zhong

Born 1944, Chengdu, China

Lives and works in Los Angeles, California

Tianyue Zhong was born in Chengdu, China, and lives and works between China and the US. She creates paintings and drawings that illustrate the uncontrollable nature of life. By using historical photographs she finds in research and shooting her own imagery, Zhong aims to capture a transformation between waiting and losing, engaged with the exuberant handling of line and paint. Fear, with its meaning in her life and her painting process, is the powerhouse for Zhong to repeatedly paint the same subject matter over time, whereas the body and shapes are incomplete and seem strangled. Zhong received an MA in painting from Royal College of Art in 2020 and a BA in Fine Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2018. Highlights of recent solo exhibitions include “Pause, Arise” at Mou Projects, Hong Kong (2023); “To Cut a Thread” at Long Story Short, New York (2023). Highlights of recent group  exhibitions include “Loyal @El Royale” presented by
