An exhibition of two artists from divergent backgrounds and their personal explorations of intersectionality in cultural identities:

Wanxin Zhang and Raphaëlle Goethals may have very different mediums with which they express themselves as artists, but they share the profound influence of a dual sense of cultural identity. Straddling divergent cultures and continents, each artist responds with work that presents the unique interpretation and resulting expression of feeling concurrently grounded and unsettled. While Zhang’s work uses “humor, confusion, anxiety, and sarcasm;” Goethals work is meditative, revealing a focus on light and space. While Goethals’ works have what appears to be infinite visual depth contained in mere inches of encaustic; Zhang works in greater 3D, crafting sculptures informed by past and present.
