Jiamin Zhang - MA Show

"This series of works is based on my autobiographical account of my journey from China to the United Kingdom" says Jaimin. 

I became aware of the correspondences and similarities of certain sights and experiences between life in China and the UK. With this inspiration and the enlightenment of the fantastic ‘light and shadow work’ by artists Tim Noble & Sue Webster, the final work encapsulates the idea of ‘communication and connection’ seen in the parallels between China and UK in different areas including culture, architecture, foods and lifestyle, and as presented by two forms: illustration and shadow artistry.

The illustrations were fused by two photographs, which were taken in Britain or Europe and China separately but from the same perspective. Each illustration has its own subject but all indicate that there are certain connections and communication between them.
