Asia Week New York 2017 Catalogue

FitzGerald Fine Arts’ 2017 Asia Week New York Exhibition

Contemporary Asian Art Exhibition at 40 Wooster Street, SoHo, New York, NY

Press Preview, Thursday, March 9th, 8am

Opening Reception, Saturday, March 11th from 6-9pm

For this special occasion, the gallery will be debuting works by acclaimed contemporary artist Beili Liu. Rise and Fall, 2016 is an impressive triptych at the focal point of the exhibition on view, created with traditional sumi ink blown directly onto canvas. The physical traces of the blown sumi ink evoke an aesthetic of movement with the look of wind, air, or breath and the piece itself explores the conversation between two extremes: black and white, positive and negative, lightness and weight. These conceptual juxtapositions and unique, contemporary creative processes can be found throughout all the works on view in the exhibition.

Also included in the FitzGerald Fine Arts’ 2017 Asia Week New York exhibition are works by renowned photographer and performance artist Han Bing, emerging sculptor Zhou Rong, graphite artist Hui Chi Lee and established porcelain painter Jared FitzGerald. Beyond the dichotomies and process-driven nature of each work on view, a common thread amongst these artists is that they all rely on a liquidity of line and form. It is an almost Surrealist approach, and this stylistic commonality serves to formally cohere the exhibition beyond the shared themes. Paramountly, the gallery’s group exhibition aims to showcase and celebrate the range and diversity of aesthetic and media across Asian contemporary art.
