KCAD Gallery 602 Presents: Work from Leilei and Beibei ChenSaturday, 27 November, 2021 @ All Day Location: Gallery 602
Leilei and Beibei Chen are Chinese artists, and twins, residing and studying in the United States, where they both earned Master of Fine Arts in Painting degrees from KCAD.
Their work is influenced heavily by Chinese culture, aesthetics, and philosophy. They have always been interested in engaging with environmental and cultural issues through ceramics and painting. Moreover, the work is created by both sisters, at the same time, sharing the canvas, paper or ceramic piece, collaboratively.
Their artworks show the over-consumption of natural resources and emphasize our human relationship to both culture and the natural environment. Within specifically the “Balance Series” of abstract paintings, Beibei and Leilei further explore the discrepancy and integration between the East and the West through deliberate juxtapositions of philosophy, aesthetics, and spatial understanding.
