Louise Zhang is currently exhibiting new works as part of a joint exhibition, entitled Sugarcoated Realness, with Sydney-based artist Terrence Combos at Archive Space.
"Primarily through the lens of painting, Combos and Zhang manufacture constructed camouflages that conflate both the jovial and the unsettling. Colour, form and materiality are the basis of an elaborate ruse that conjures the essence of playfulness while addressing issues of otherness, grotesqueness, incompetence and self-deprecation."
Sugarcoated Realness runs until 23 August 2014 at Archive Space in Newtown.
