Zhang Ruyi’s artistic practice embeds itself in nothing less than the logic of life. It is centered on the relationship between ego consciousness, physical space, and mundane experience. By withholding certain “slices” of time and information of the material employed, the artist is able to capture, conceal, retain or fabricate the materialization of emotions. She works predominantly in abstract drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. In her practice, sculpture occupies a unique space mediating artifacts, industrial experience and urbanism.
