This exhibition presents painting and photography by gallery artists who explore both traditional themes and contemporary issues. The work spans a wide range of media yet all of the artists use visual language rooted deep in their cultural identities.
On view are dynamic, abstract assemblages from Korean artist Chun Kwang Young combining elements of sculpture and painting, and sublime, contemplative Waterfall paintings by renowned Japanese painter Hiroshi Senju. For his colorful large-scale canvases, Mexican-born painter Ricardo Mazal crafts his own tools and employs techniques that makes oil paint look like fabric.
The show also features light-reflecting metal painting by Japanese-American artist Miya Ando; painting by celebrated Indian artist, poet and guru Sohan Qadri; and abstract paintings inspired by the rich traditions of Persian calligraphy from Iranian artist Golnaz Fathi. Images from leading photographers Karen Knorr and Lalla Essaydi are also on view.
