Zhang Xiaotao's Artworks Show:
- Skillfully combining the alluring with the abject, Zhang’s paintings are formally ambitious—large in scale (often measured in meters), they enlist techniques from both Western and Chinese traditions. While he tends to reflect on his immediate surroundings, Zhang’s approach is usually allegorical rather than strictly narrative.
- Zhang’s paintings, videos, and installations focus on psychologically charged symbols—feasting ants, moldering strawberries—that suggest and elicit powerful, conflicting affective states: longing and disappointment, desire and disgust.
- The titles of the works by Zhang Xiaotao are “Joyful Time”, “The place of Desire”, “Heaven”. “Image of Desire”, “Beautiful and Dissipated”, “Decay Landscapes” (2004), they all contain the topics and the emotions of the artists and the ones provoked to the viewer: joy, paradise, desire, beauty, decadence, landscape, celestial love, happiness, dream, hallucination, dissipation.
