POURAN JINCHI, IL LEE, RICHARD TSAO
Artists Reception: Wednesday, October 28, 6-8pm
A featured event of 2015 Asian Contemporary Art Week
Art Projects International is pleased to present Deceptively Simple featuring rarely-seen reductive works by Pouran Jinchi, Il Lee and Richard Tsao. These works, most of them exhibited for the first time, include monochromatic paintings by Pouran Jinchi; hard-edge works by Il Lee; and “Round” series works by Richard Tsao. In limited series, the artists have explored specific interests, and the viewer—by viewing a repeated symbol in a color field; a single, silhouetted shape; or two vibrating colors paired—has a chance to see the artists’ thinking. At first glance these works may seem to exist outside the artists’ usual production, but these investigations of symbol, form, and color are focused experiments that reveal how elemental concerns are manifested in the artists’ broader explorations of abstraction and artistic identity.
