Ting Yih "Selections from One Hundred Paintings: Not Here Not There, after Samuel Beckett"

Gallery 456 in Chinese-American Arts Council

This event has ended.

"The plan was to just paint and withhold exegesis for future. Found these 2 by 2 foot already cut plywood at Home Depot. There is a lineage of square images from the Mandala to Ad Reinhard. The number 100 was arbitrarily chosen but it also feels complete. These paintings are after S.B. in spirit not necessarily in content.
