'Tuan Jie' - Unity (detail)

Unbound Perspective Exhibition, New York 2016

Group Exhibition in Agora Gallery, New York, USA. 

(excerpt)
A group exhibition highlighting work that presents reality with heightened aesthetic possibilities. Bringing together no fewer than eighteen artists, the exhibition is an eclectic mixture of photography, painting, and sculpture. Some pieces present subtler, updated forms of surrealism: familiar objects and figures taken out of context and placed into new environments, or classic art historical tableaux with present-day icons swapped in. Other pieces are rooted in abstraction and approach the familiar from the opposite end of the spectrum. There are investigations into colour, line, and texture, all as they relate to depicting things from the real world – and especially, imagining them differently. Every work in Unbound Perspectives shares the tension of seeing foreign elements integrated with everyday things. The exhibition celebrates the new and the unexpected, with eyes forward but always carrying knowledge of the past. Read Jacky's profile by Agora Gallery.
