Bai Xincheng (China) - Limited Edition lithographs prints on paper; Julia Nee Chu (China/USA) - Limited Edition Archival Glicee prints; Donald Damask (USA) - One-of-a-kind Archival Glicee Prints on paper handmade in Italy; Terrell James (USA) - Etching Prints and Monotypes on paper; Rick Lewis (USA) - Monoprints on paper; Pablo Posada Pernikoff (Japan) - Unique Mono Engraving on Paper.
Beijing artist Bai Xincheng (b.1957) has devoted himself to the study of lines. The unique position of line in his art stems from his unorthodox training in his formative years and his training in calligraphy. Bais line serves as a connection between Chinese tradition and Western modernity. For him, lines are a highly individualistic language that creates highly expressive images and in a state of confusion.
Julia Nee Chu was born in Shanghai and currently lives and works in Santa Monica, California. Nee Chu‚s focus has always had to do with nature or rather, the processes or movements of nature. She states: For a Chinese, the purest form of art is calligraphy. The spirit of the brushstroke, also called touch, is spontaneity and finality. Nee Chus act of painting is a dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious, and the orientation of herself to the world.
Born 1953 in New York City and currently living in St. Louis, Donald Damasks aesthetic interests are focused on the colors and textures in life that are passed by and taken for granted. He is inspired by the subtle details of wall surfaces, nuances that chronicle the movement of time: lights, darks, shadows, hot, cold, wet, dry, smooth, rough, organic, living and decaying.
Born 1955 in Texas, Terrell James is primarily concerned with the spatial layering revealed by a study of landscape using natural and organic forms. In her work every line has a purpose and is solidly placed. Her compositions possess a dreamy, ethereal landscape quality that pulls the viewer into a dreamscape of etched fields of abstracted nature.
Rick Lewis‚ works are about the stark impermanence and beauty of the natural world, especially the vague territory of remembered experience. The pieces are an analog of physical experience, where a remembered landscape or event leaves us with sensations and associations of our own. Born 1965 in Texas, his 2002 Artist in Residency in Bali, Indonesia has influenced his works with an ever-greater sense of spirituality, filled with harmonious earth-like colors.
Pablo Posada Pernikoff was born in 1964 in Pamplona, Spain and now lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. His works are based on the natural phenomena of matter flowing through space and time and are carved, pressed or engraved using glass, paper, metal, pigment and ink. Each paper relief also creates lines of light and shadow conveying movement, however the centre metal component traces movement frozen in time.
