poster for Chen Dongfan “Met You”

This event has ended.

A graduate of the China Academy of Art, Chen Dongfan works primarily in painting but has also employed installation and video, along with other formats. Chen takes color itself to reflect adroitly on issues of form and as a means of finding balance amid disorder. In the artist’s opinion, the work exists organically as a means via which both to explore and to describe things themselves indeterminate. Here the artist’s relationship to the work is not one merely of expression, but rather to engage himself more as a medium, the work and to scrutinize one another and working together in mutual refinement.

Works by Chen Dongfan, a contemporary artist working from both Hangzhou, China and New York, and our newest addition to AG Gallery, appear spontaneous and are immersive and captivating. His pieces, often painted with thick strokes and presented in large-scale, appear to be an explosion of emotion and youthful vibrance. A collage of colors and characters, signs and scenes. He seems to combines both urban grit with childlike innocence to create a sensation that all at once feels surreal yet organic. Rather than his usual large-scale works, the pieces featured in Dongfan’s upcoming solo exhibition, Met You, will be a series of smaller paintings; of portraits and abstract visual poetry.
