Xiao Yang is a Buffalo based artist. She received a BFA with an emphasis in abstract Painting and Illustration from Daemen College, and currently enrolled at MFA program at the University at Buffalo (SUNY). Yang’s paintings, installations, and performance have been exhibited at UB art Gallery, 1045 gallery, El Museo, and Art Space. etc.

Her work draws inspiration from the micro and macro and employs scale to explore the impact of the body’s known relationships. The fluid, unnamable abstractions often run parallel to the theme of the uncanny as the artist tries to situate herself within a new culture that is becoming more familiar and her cultural roots that are now feeling more removed, operating between being “home-like” and “unlike home” within a shift of personal identities.
