Ying Zhu


Ying Zhu was born in 1979 in the Midwest region of China and currently living in Washington, DC. Zhu received a M.F.A. from University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Zhu’s work has always been tied to the self in the context of the world around us. In her site-specific installations, she methodically draws out the relationships between action and consequence. Through intuitive manipulations, material becomes the threshold of her work with its color, texture and inherent functions.

Her work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions including Live Like An Astronaut, Klein Sun Gallery, New York, NY (2015); Crumbs of Tenderness, Lied Gallery, Creighton University, Omaha, NE (2014); Return As Departure, Lux Center for the Arts, Lincoln, NE (2014); Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining, Union for Contemporary Art, Omaha, NE (2014); and Please Watch Your Step, Museum of Nebraska Art, Omaha, NE (2013).
