Sin-ying Ho will talk with Leslie Ferrin of Ferrin Contemporary and Project Art of her ceramic productions, a mash-up of traditional Chinese culture and contemporary global ideas and imagery. Sin-Ying Ho juxtaposes Chinese images drawn from nature with man-made symbols, signs, words, and logos.

On the occasion of her exhibition at Independent Art Projects, Sin-ying Ho will discuss the role of ceramics in her life, and where she’s headed next. Her two vessels at IAP will be on view until December 25, 2014.

Gallery Talk with Tanya Marcuse

Gallery Talk with Tanya Marcuse

SATURDAY, AUGUST 2, 11:30 AM
Free and open to the public

Tanya Marcuse will talk with IAP Director Martina Caruso about the foundations of Fallen series. Tanya Marcuse’s imaginative photographs possess the magic of teetering between plausible and implausible, life and death, and she has an undeniable signature style: a mix of dreamy romanticism and clinical exactness.

On the occasion of her exhibition at Independent Art Projects, we invited Tanya to discuss the role photography plays in her life, and where she’s headed next. Her exhibition at IAP is on view until September 21, 2014.

Marcuse will also sign her exhibition catalogue “Fallen” available for sale at IAP.

Lianghong Feng’s Paintings and Process

Lianghong Feng’s Paintings and Process

In 1982, when I was 20 years old a though suddenly came to my mind on my birthday, which is to draw a picture for myself, so I started to paint on canvas, and since then, my career in abstract painting began. – Lianghong Feng

Bejing-based artist Lianghong Feng has made this video in 2011 for CYNTHIA-REEVES.

Feng produces lush abstract paintings inspired by a heady mixture of ancient Chinese philosophy, calligraphy, Eastern and Western art history, and urban graffiti. He covers his canvases with beautifully complementary passages of color and all manner of marks, including fat, paint-laden brushstrokes; thin, sketchy scribbles; drips; daubs; and splatters. He often begins with a naturalistic landscape, which he then partially obscures with an overlay of his abstract marks.

Feng both refuses and accepts categorizations of his work—a Zen-like position that acknowledges our natural inclination to define works of art in concrete terms, while also insisting upon the freedom to approach his practice with originality and without preconditions.
