Siping Zhang is a visiting artist/scholar in the Department of Art at Appalachian State University during the 2016-17 academic year. The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts is pleased to partner with the art department, particularly the clay concentration to present this important international artist. The clay concentration’s goal is to emphasis the conceptual understanding, perspective and language of clay while advancing student’s technical skills. The clay curriculum is enhanced by the Ceramic Speaker Series which brings visiting artists to the Appalachian State University campus for demos, critiques and lectures. Siping Zhang will show new work made during her residency as well as a selection of small works made in China.

Artist's Statement

Different subjects vary widely in their form of expression, therefore, the combination of different forms in art will present a new insight. My artistic works attempt to use fire-scorched ceramics to freeze the unified combination and complementation of various forms of human body and the natural texture of materials to express the unique meaning of valuable moments in our life and harmony in our world.
