Zhuang Hong Yi: Color Fields
Location: Laura Rathe Fine Art
Dallas Design District Gallery, Laura Rathe Fine Art, announces a highly anticipated solo exhibition‘Color Fields’, featuring new works by internationally acclaimedartist, Zhuang Hong Yi. LRFA will be hosting the opening reception on Saturday, January 11thfrom 5:00-8:00pm.
Brilliantly colorful and richly textured, the work of Zhuang Hong Yi has a powerful yet elegant presence. While flying between his hometown of Beijing and Holland, Zhuang was inspired by the breathtaking colors that shifted in the fields of flowers below. Wanting to recreate this experience through his art, Zhuang began using rice paper, a traditional Chinese material, and painstakingly began folding and forming symbolic flower motifs. He then adopts a more western approach by using blocks of bold and vibrant pigments that wondrously change from every angle, giving the semblance of bountiful fields of color.
‘Color Fields’ will be on display through February 8th, 2020.
