Artist in Residence – Xuewei Jiang

Xuewei Jiang is a painter from Nanjing, China. She received her BFA from the School of Art Institute of Chicago and focused on painting and sculpture. Xuewei’s work features the relationship between social influence and self-cognition.

She is currently working on the stretched canvas series, which can be described as two-dimensional or three-dimensional; as flat, shallow, or deep; as open or closed; and as emotion or illusion. The series uses abstract form as body, discusses the distortion and nature of people’s spirit.
