"I Look For the Sky" exhibition created by a Chinese American artist
Mark Niu

Born in Shanghai, artist Zheng Chongbin has had exhibits around the world.

He is trained in classical Chinese figurative painting from the China Academy of Art. He later studied performance, installation and conceptual art at the San Francisco Art Institute.

His latest work now being featured at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco brings those two influences together in his exhibit "I Look For the Sky.”

The multi-level, multi-room installations use light-sensitive material to create spaces within spaces.

The installation comprises ink paintings, videos, and a chamber made of translucent material to heighten an awareness of our bodies moving through space.

He calls "I Look For the Sky" an unsettling piece of work for an unsettling time.
