ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Lives & works in Irvine and Los Angeles, California, US. Contemporary sculptor, painter.
Coming from a family with an architectural background, Wang moved from China to the United States in 2014 to study architectural design, while pursuing art as mere enthusiast in her spare time. Gradually through her dialectical eccentricity drove her to fully dedicate herself to her art and upon receiving her masters’ degree she quitted architecture. She has lived and worked as an artist ever since.
Wang is interested in subjects regarding human sufferings, particularly fascination with congenital anomalies, especially the incurable ones, like for example neurofibromatosis or epidermodysplasia. She is immensely intrigued by various types of conjoined twins and above all genetic mutations with pathological manifestations. Wang finds the greatest beauty in the accidental biological events and she marvels them over and over again in her art. Often through the medium of her own body, along with the deliberate combination of multiple layers of apparent genetic diseases that she has been focusing on, in a synchronization with random spattered bloody red as foreground or background, Wang’s work projects her emotional sensations.
