Oil on canvas
200 x 300 cm
Oscillating between the macro and micro, the engulfing scale of Zhang Xioatao’s paintings is at odds with his tiny subjects, each canvas encapsulating a sense of ’universe’ within their humble depictions. Approaching painting as an archetype of beauty, Zhang’s surfaces are vivacious in their intensely rich detail. Mesmerising with lush textures and soulful hues, Zhang magnifies the conception of space and physicality, creating a sense of infinity within the minute and claustrophobic.
