In this newsletter, I am excited to announce that:
- I am now represented by Joy Wai Gallery in New York City and China.
- In July 2013, I will be having my first solo exhibition in New York City at the Joy Wai Gallery. Watch for details of the exhibition.
I met Joy in November 2011 while participating in the Contemporary Art Fair NYC at the Javits Center. Joy was immediately a fan of my artwork. Since our first meeting, we had a number of communications which included several face to face meetings. This cumulative in a meeting at the end of January 2013 when we finalized and signed a representation contract. I look forward to working with Joy in developing the New York and Chinese markets.
To the right are two of Joy’s favorite pieces of my artwork... Purple Tango #1 and Purple Tango #2.
The Gallery focuses on contemporary art with a strong focus in fine art photography: our mission is to showcase visionary artists to an international audience. With an educational program being developed, including guest lecturers varying from artists, critics, curators and professors, the Gallery will serve as an important platform for exchanges within the art community. We aim to become a pivotal resource for artists and collectors, as well as the other individuals that comprise the visual arts community. The Joy Wai Gallery journey is an exciting one as we continue to enjoy our development.
About Joy Wai: Joy Wai is the founder and curator of the Gallery and goes by the motto, "Art is Life and Life is Art". Ms. Wai grew up and learned Chinese Painting in her grandfather's studio, Hui Xiao Tong, a great artist and remarkable collector. He co-founded The Beijing National Art College and was her first art teacher and mentor in life. Today, her business practices in the art world have made her many ties throughout China and Hong Kong.
Joy describes her life as fragmented, "it’s just like I have had four lives. Sometimes the distance and time between them make me feel that these lives are disconnected. It is only art that makes my whole life connected, stronger and richer." She believes that playing and practicing with the creation of art makes life rich and beautiful. The vibrancy of New York's art world has allowed her to follow her dream of creating a gallery space.
