Z. Z. Wei: Whispers of the Heartland
opening reception: Friday, May 31 5-7 pm
on view: May 31–June 14, 2024

Join Blue Rain Gallery in the Railyard for the opening of the exhibition of new works by Z.Z. Wei on Friday, May 31, from 5-7 pm. Wei’s style and imagery are heavy with references to Americana. However, they are abstractions of his views. Richly complex, they are filled with humor and loneliness, peacefulness and pain. They balance on the knife-edge of meaning, tempting those who choose to look beyond the mundane to experience a unique and timeless look at life.

Wei was born in 1957, in Beijing, China. He started painting at young age during China’s Culture Revolution. Art and Painting were his sanctuary from the turmoil of his school and family. He graduated from Central Institute of Arts and Design in Beijing in 1984.

Wei came to the United States in 1989. The rural landscape of America has transformed him as a person and an artist. It represents the beginning of a fresh lifestyle and art. Wei unites his art and life experiences in China with his perspectives inspired by traveling the backroads of America, creating a rich and poetic oeuvre.
