Zhang Yu

1959, Tianjin China

Introduction

Zhang Yu was born in Tianjin, China in 1959 and graduated from the Tianjin Academy of Arts and Crafts in 1988. Throughout his artistic career, he has been engaged with the language of art and experimental ink painting, contributing to and reforming the discursive boundaries of ink art. His early series, Divine Light, became internationally recognised when included in the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition Ink Art: Past As Present in Contemporary China, in 2013. These abstract paintings from the late 90s and early 2000s reflected the artist's interest in the cosmos, an early step on his journey towards the expression of nothingness. This investigation continued with the "Shang 上" Series (including Water Feeding, Ink Feeding, Filling Tea, and Serving Wine) in which the artist abandoned human contact with the paper altogether. In 2016, Alisan Fine Arts included Zhang's performance piece Imbued with Tea in the group show Is it Ink Art. This piece included a tea ceremony, an installation of porcelain bowls and works on paper.

Of his many famous series, Fingerprints is distinguished for the rupture Zhang Yu made with the brush, transitioning the application of pigment to his index finger and maintaining it as the sole tool of creation. As he explains in the interview reproduced in his 2010 AFA catalogue, the fingerprints method and format allow him the ideal vehicle for exploring the relationship between self-identity, time and existence. Zhang Yu has developed the series across multiple media, from the original works on paper, to video, large-scale installation, innovative combinations such as glass and fingernail polish, interactive public projects, and sculpture. Over the past three years, Zhang Yu has focused largely on "Fingerprints," undertaking large-scale projects in different academic institutions throughout Taiwan, including a socially interactive element whereby thousands of students in Taichung placed their fingerprints upon the university's glass entry doors. "Fingerprints" was featured at the recent major exhibition Post-Brushwork Era at the Guangdong Museum of Art (2018) and previously at the Today Art Museum Beijing 2012 and Art Museum of Rome in 2011.

Zhang's works are collected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Chinese Culture Center, San Francisco, US; Benetton Museum, Venice, Italy; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark; National Art Museum of China, Beijing; Chengdu Modern Art Museum, Chengdu, China; Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong, to name a few. His work is currently featured in the four-stop travelling show The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China which is travelling across the United States from the Los Angeles County Museum to the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
