All That You Need

January 11 @ 8:00 am - April 6 @ 7:00 pm

Presented by Chashama

Artist Statement:

All beings thrive on desire and passion.

The fabled story of the Bower Bird has long been a fascination for me. The male song bird can spend up to a year collecting twigs, berries and small objects in order to build beautiful and elaborate nests, all in the hopes of attracting a mate. These paintings are my empathetic reaction to the Bower Bird’s mission for love, companionship and ultimately, approval. Lush settings, depicting objects I collected or scenes of a Louisiana swamp, are interwoven with pattern and design. We are all driven by the ideals and relentless toil of desire and hope. Some just show it off.

Artist Bio:
Born in Guang Dong, China and raised in New York, Gigi Chen’s work creates an aesthetic that combines her training as a traditional animator and painter, along with her love of the techniques of Old Masters. Entrenched in the art of storytelling, the work pulls together her love of contemporary idioms of cartooning, photo realism, texture and design to produce works that coalesce into Love, Craft and Fun.
