Spaces of Exchange #3 "Painting Reality – What Is Going On Right Now?"
For SE’s third session, Misato Pang, Chen and Kok will unpack the rich and layered meanings of the Asian-American experience. Anchored on the theme of being exposed and raised in the context of two (or more) cultures, the discussion will explore how both artists tap into and illustrate their understanding of their ever-changing surrounding contexts in their paintings and consider the nuances behind the fast-growing online international Asian community, Subtle Asian Traits.
Pang’s abstract Fauvist paintings are inspired by her interest in cultural events, like social phenomenon and political discourse in Asia, while Chen’s intimate portraits of Asian Americans become an entry point to better grasp the psychology of race, from various lenses and perspectives.
