Shanshan Jiang’s work explores the living state of human beings, the natural environment and how they coexist with each other. The environment is observed from the perspective of human beings and their status within it; how do these two forces influence and depend on each other. The environment is tinted with the thoughts of human, while humans gain the spirits of nature.

Jiang studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China and graduated in 2014. She completed an MLitt in Fine Art Practice at GSA, 2018. She now lives and continues to practice her art in the city of Glasgow.
