Nova Jiang (b. 1985, Dalian, China) lives and works in Los Angeles. Her practice includes painting, sculpture, conceptual art, installation, and public art, often combining new technology and traditional artmaking techniques in unfamiliar ways. Informed by her experience as a young immigrant growing up in New Zealand, as well as wider concerns over climate change and xenophobia, Jiang’s paintings juxtapose familiar elements and unexpected arrangements to explore the formation of identity and our uneasy relationships with nature.
Recent solo exhibitions include: Markers, Union Pacific, London (2021). Selected group exhibitions include: The Devil You Know, Simone Subal, New York (2022), Song of the Cicada, Honor Fraser, Los Angeles (2021), Archive Machines, LAMAG, Los Angeles (2020) and Returning to the Source, Wave Hill, New York (2020), amongst others.
