ETHAN COHEN FINE ARTS PRESENTS:
Contemporary Chinese Art:
INK EXPLOSION 2010
opening March 5th, 6:30-8
This exhibit will feature new innovative ink work from some of
today’s top Chinese artists: Huang Yan, Cang Xin, Dong Hao,
Hu Youben, Han Weihua, Zhang Tiemei and others.
Ink is the medium that is possibly the most associated with the arts of China.
It has been one of the few constant threads in this ever-changing part of
the world for thousands of years. Since China’s first introductions to the
styles, techniques and subjects of the outside world, their artists have had at
an ever-expanding range of creative options. From oils and photography,
to performance and new media, China’s artists today are among the most
diverse and innovative. However, each contemporary Chinese artist,
regardless of their preferred medium, has worked at some time with ink.
Sometimes ink and brush are used in a manner that is more directly linked to
the China’s traditional techniques and styles, and sometimes these artists
are pushing the boundaries and finding astounding and innovative new
ways of working with this medium. More often, though, Chinese artists are
synthesizing the old and the new – mediums, styles, influences, messages –
into experimental works that can be both powerful and beautiful. Ground
breaking and nostalgic at the same time.
In this group exhibition, we would like to showcase new ink work from
some of today’s top Chinese artists in “Chinese Contemporary Art: Ink
Explosion 2010”. Featured in the show are works that speak of both the
beautiful, traditional styles as well as exiting new directions.
This show also marks new directions for Ethan Cohen Fine Arts.
We will be holding this show in our NEW LOCATION of 14 Jay
Street, in Tribeca. Over the next month, we will be continuing
to move our gallery to this new space located just a few
doors East of our current location, 18 Jay Street.
Please join us in celebrating these new works of art,
innovative artists as well as our new location!
