JEAN CHIANG: A JOURNEY CALLED LIFE EXHIBITION ON DISPLAY AT MAIN LIBRARY MARCH 30 – AUGUST 25
–Artwork inspired by artist’s own history!–
(MIAMI, MARCH 27, 2012) – Miami-Dade Public Library System’s Main Library 1st floor exhibition space– 101 West Flagler Street – will host the exhibition: Jean Chiang: A Journey Called Life from March 30 through August 25. Jean Chiang's artwork is inspired by her interests in anthropology, archaeology, architecture and astrology. Since arriving in Miami in 2001, Chiang began investigating the cultural history and philosophy of China, as well as her personal history as a child of immigrants. Her inspiration develops into a story with research then manifests itself in different materials as diverse as clay, wood, metal, paint, fiber, textile and beads - each with their inherent expressive quality. For this exhibition, Chiang will display a series of large-scale wooden panel paintings inspired by her historical research of the Great Wall of China, as well as some of her intricate, smaller scale works.
About the artist: Jean Chiang executes her work in small scale, intricate embroidery and beadwork to works on paper to large scale interactive installations. Chiang received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design and a Masters in Fine Arts, in sculpture, from Hunter College. She has pursued studies and works in a wide-range of media, including clay, wood, metal, paint, fiber, textile and beads. Chiang has exhibited her work at Diaspora Vibe Gallery, the Asian American Arts Centre (New York), P.S. 1, and the Hong Kong Art Center, among others.
