Conduit Gallery will present "Recycled," a solo exhibition of new work by Boston-based artist C. Meng. Meng’s latest body of work comprises interpretational small-scale paintings and large mixed media pieces, a fusion of eastern and western artistic ideals.

Prevented his usual stream of visual stimulus from travels and pre-pandemic rhythms, this work is the result of a delve into his repository of saved, found and captured photographs collected through daily life. Honoring the Impressionists as well as traditional folk imagery, Meng recreates these images through his own facile hand, delivering a new interpretation. Disassociating an image from its original context sparked Meng’s curiosity about the intrinsic meaning in imagery and how it will be received and interpreted once transformed. Not only are the images recycled, but quite literally his materials are as well. Hating to throw away the packaging from so many ordered pandemic supplies, he gave rebirth to cast aside materials, applying a painter’s approach to ‘building’ large scale works.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through February 12.
