Reception: Oct. 13, 6-9 PM

Hailing from Shanghai, Shimo is one of China's most respected and well-known artists. In this exhibit, the artist pairs his recent landscape paintings with his elegant blue and white porcelain vases. By adapting well-established Chinese painting techniques, Shimo strives to infuse his nature-inspired themes with contemporary design. His work includes ancient symbols such as the lotus, to reflect a belief in transcendence of the spiritual over the earthly. His self-crafted multi-layer dripping ink technique involves a variety of drips, stains, pours, and mopping with large brushes across the surface. In all, Shimo’s work is a conscious melding of traditional Chinese painting and ceramics with new painterly methods of working with materials in a gestural, expressionist way. Sponsored by Kit and Bonnie Lam, Ron & Rosie Soohoo, Don Yee and Frances Leung, Linda Tsao Yang, and Terence Leung.
