Artist Crush: Xinyi Cheng

May 27th, 2014 · No Comments

Xinyi Cheng is an MFA candidate at Maryland Institute College of Art . Chen records small moments in life, bringing them to glory by an otherworldly sensitivity expressed in color and a simplified painting style.

“Xinyi Cheng… paints hairy white men and warped interior space. She is interested in structuring emotions that are specific and complex. Not simply an expression of her own feelings, but an unsettling configuration of the multiple layers of emotion that congeal over time. Like a type of sadness that smells of pineapple.” – Artist statement
