Zhang Xinyan puts post-expressionism in Western art history in dialogue with materials and themes such as Chinese painting and news real events.Her artistic practice uses fragmentation and hybrid techniques to explore the "vulnerability of human nature" and the "common state of human existence" under the influence of popular culture.Throughout her works, Xinyan offers up images of human nature in different states—through the "wounded" to insinuate the decay and pale of the spiritual world of modern people.The weak status of women and children in society is her focus.
