Exhibitions in NYC and San Francisco Summer 2017

I am so thrilled to have my paintings exhibited in NYC and San Francisco this summer.

NYC, @George Adams Gallery in Chelsea from July 13 to August 18

This show exhibits a group of my small works made from 2013 to 2017. These works are from my concept of Light Space Intimacy. I really like how the works are presented in the gallery-thirteen paintings are hung on the walls of the gallery’s small side room, which “forces” viewers to closely examine the work, as the paintings are meant for the audiences to have a close relation with the art.

San Francisco, @Mirus Gallery from July 14 to August 13

Four paintings from Light Matter series are presented in an international group exhibition titled Nu Geometry at Mirus Gallery. It feels strange that my art work travel to the place where I started to learn art eleven years ago. It definitely brought back a lot of memories about the Bay Area and San Francisco. I remembered as an art student that one of my favorite social activities was the first Friday gallery hopping in San Francisco with my art classmates and friends from UC Berkeley.  We had so much fun, not only with the free drinks, but from the vibes and the young spirits.  I did not remember the numbers of galleries we visited and the miles we walked on the streets at midnight in San Francisco, but till today, I remember many artworks and names of artists, many of whom remain an inspiration for my art practice. Today, the majority of the friends are no longer artists and I doubt they would still go to art gallery hopping. But,  this summer,  my paintings are on the wall, feeling the young sparks on my behalf.
