"Multifaceted" New York Contemporary Art Exhibition
Chinese American artists in New York is an unique existence. "Multifaceted" New York Contemporary Art Exhibition is trying to capture the diversity of their spirit-even though they were all born in China. This is not only reflected in the different background of 8 participated artists, but more reflected in the approach and media of their works. Nothing can be better represented the city of New York than "multifaceted". That is the diversity and richness of culture。
These artists were all born in China with deep influence of eastern culture and invariably chose New York as the place of rebirth for their lives and art. Among them are immigrants and New Yorkers who have lived here since their childhood. There are not only accomplished artists, but also recent college graduates, some of them have been trained in the top art academies in mainland China, while others grew up completely in the American education system and were able to benefit from both systems. With these totally different backgrounds, each work presents a very unique and rich individuality.
The exhibition includes traditional oil painting and Chinese ink, multi-media digital art. They range from abstract to realistic work with ever-changing themes and styles.
"Multi-faceted" can be interpreted as people of many faces, but more of a metaphor for the artist's works in the reflection of the cultural diversity. Intentionally and unintentionally, they reflect the strong impact of a variety of cultural and life experience. The so-called "painting as its artist", the work is a mirror of the artist's inner spiritual world, each person's own culture will involuntarily transferred to their arts and personal emotions will imprint into those transformations of color and strokes. More importantly, all of the works have discussed the connection between the artist’s feelings and the social reality; some were calmly observing or sharply criticizing, while others were angrily protesting.
Different people, together with unique interpretation formed this extraordinary "Multifaceted." like our beloved city which allows everyone to have the opportunity to fully express their individuality. This is the multifaceted New York spirit; it is also the essence and the face of contemporary art.
