New China/New Americana
Friday, January 21, 2011
11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Ohio State Mansfield Pearl Conard Gallery
1760 University Drive
Mansfield, OH 44906
Presented By: OSU Mansfield
The exhibition will include the works of two artists, Andrew Edwards and Ming Zhou. Edwards, an artist from New York City, likes to create highly realized visions- significant detail with altered perspectives. He works mainly i multicolored acrylic and sometimes in pencil.
Zhou, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, considers his work a critique of China's new middle class. The artist feels China's new middle class blindly mimics things from the West as an expression of "good taste." He exaggerates color contrasts and saturation to make the elements of the paintings look cheap, unclassy and mismatched.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 11 am - 4 pm, Monday through Friday.
