Exhibit: Transcending Boundaries - Qin Feng, Wei Jia and Lin Yan | Westport, CT

Date/Time

May 3, 2014 to Jun 14, 2014
11:00 AM until 05:30 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Description

The exhibition features paintings and works on paper by these three highly respected Chinese artists who work both in China and the U.S. These artists’ Asian artistic heritage is clearly evident in their work. However, their western experiences greatly inform their art.

Qin Feng, Wei Jia and Lin Yan are among the artists whose work is included in the Bruce Museum exhibition “Tale of Two Cities: New York-Beijing” which will be on view from May 3rd through August 31st. Transcending Boundaries will compliment the Bruce exhibition and include a diverse selection of pieces by these three major Chinese artists.

The inspirations of Qin Feng’s work comes from the origin of civilizations. He tries to capture a specific sound, a particular smell, a special light or dusts from the ancient past. Regardless of the size of the works, his brushstrokes are always symbolic. His work is an expression between the personal and the ancient past, a synthesis of the east and west.

Lin Yan draws on her Asian roots with visual elements such as paper casting segments of Chinese roof tiles in rich shades of traditional black ink. Echoes of Eastern culture reverberate but there is always a monumental, western perspective in the work. She transcends the boundaries of east and west.

Wei Jia is greatly influenced by traditional Chinese calligraphy and western minimalist art. These dual fascinations evolved into the creation of his “Calligrapher paintings, a series of works which began with abstract Chinese symbols that became totally abstract forms.

The exhibition will be on view from May 3rd through June 14th. 

Gallery hours are 11:00am – 5:30pm and by appointment. For further information, contact the gallery at (203) 259-1500 or check the website, amysimonfineart.com.
