Dual Nature

New exhibition at Amy Simon Fine Art



Open now at Amy Simon Fine Art in Westport is the new exhibition featuring paintings and works on paper by three highly respected Chinese artists. Though all three were born in China, their work is also influenced by their western experiences. The show compliments the Bruce Museum’s exhibition “Tale of Two Cities: New York-Beijing,” on view from May 3 through August 31.

Born in Xinjiang, Qin Feng left China at an early age, and has since had his works exhibited worldwide. His work is an expression between the personal and the ancient past, a synthesis of the east and west. Lin Yan was born in Beijing to a family of highly distinguished artists. Her own art explores the relationship of Chinese traditional painting and modernist abstraction. Also born in Beijing, Wei Jia studied Chinese traditional calligraphy, brushwork and painting. His work plays with the subtleties of positive and negative space found in traditional Chinese painting.

The exhibition will be on view from May 3 through June 14 at Amy Simon Fine Art gallery. Gallery hours are 11a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and by appointment. For further information, contact the gallery at 203-259-1500 or check the website, amysimonfineart.com.
