Mixed media painter Chen Jiao will be presenting her solo exhibition entitled “Some Day” as part of Asian Contemporary Art Week’s programme. The award wining artist from Chongqing, China paints vignettes from her childhood combining nostalgia, precision and the appearance of scientific accuracy. Jiao reinterprets seemingly mundane scenes with her classic lyricism, and a hint of visual trickery to create a “subtle but powerful commentary on the inner workings of authoritarianism.”
The exhibition opens Tally Beck Contemporary Gallery NYC on Saturday, March 26th, 2011 from 6pm to 10pm.
