With influences from modern artists like Agnes Martin and Sol LeWitt and designers like Dieter Rams, photography duo Jiaxi Yang and Zhe Zhu’s work appears to be equally at home in fine art galleries and WSJ. Magazine. This quality doesn’t go unnoticed: “Our clients like to describe our still-life style as ‘fine art,’ which is something we tend to promote,” they say. Zhe studied still-life photography at the School of Visual Arts, and Jiaxi went into the same specialty at the International Center of Photography. With an engaged, hands-on approach to set making and art directing in their Brooklyn apartment, the pair remains fluid with their techniques while developing a distinctive dream-like style that attracts the eye with abstract elements. “We constantly learn techniques from other artists that inform our own image-making process,” the photographers state.
