Dear Friends,
Two of my recent gouache and oil marker drawings will be on view in Matrixes Small Works at the Kate Oh Gallery, 31 East 72nd St. NYC. Opening Reception: August 9, 2022, 6:00-8:00 pm; Exhibition Dates: August 9 – 27, 2022.
The show features an array of contemporary women artists involved in a myriad stock of art practices. These works, shown together in a collective presentation, enhance each other and accrue novel, unexpected meanings. According to curator Jaynie Crimmins, “The artists … have traveled on overlapping paths in New York City’s art communities, and in their art practices. While their artwork demonstrate a variety of strategies and materials, and they are from diverse backgrounds, they appreciate their commonalities in a hectic world and divisive cultural moment, and pass around hats as to the curatorial/organizational roles each engages”

Philosopher and Art Critic Ekin Erkan writes in her review:

“Cheng, Riley, Romanell, and Baker make use of geometric mosaics, challenging two-dimensionality with hallucinatory reverie—a partial standout is Cheng’s piece, which features an orbular sphere in the center of a crooning matrix, fitting given the show’s title. … The variegated nature of the exhibition’s unique elements, small in size when treated separately but grand in scale as a unified whole, makes for the show’s strength.”
