Laura Rathe Fine Art presents Zhuang Hong Yi: "Kaleidoscope" opening day
Laura Rathe Fine Art will present a solo exhibition, "Kaleidoscope," featuring new works by Zhuang Hong Yi.
Zhuang Hong Yi, one of China’s most influential artists, utilizes complex patterns of color and texture to create his iconic Flowerbed series. While flying between his hometown of Beijing and Holland, Zhuang was inspired by the kaleidoscopic shift of colors in the flower fields below. Wanting to recreate this experience through his art, Zhuang began using folded rice paper, a traditional Chinese material, to create intricate flower motifs. He then adopted a more western approach by using blocks of bold and vibrant colors which are continuously undulating, depending on the viewer’s distance and perspective.
The exhibition will be on display through February 13. The gallery is open by appointment only.
