Art League Houston presents Gao Hang: "Good Times, Bad Times, Give Me Some of That" opening reception
Art League Houston presents "Good Times, Bad Times, Give Me Some of That," an exhibition by Chinese-born and Houston-based artist, Gao Hang. The exhibition features an installation of small scale watercolors from the artists’ diary highlighting his moments of culture shock upon arrival to the United States.
The works in the exhibition mirror the humor, surprise, strangeness and optimism of his experience as a foreigner from China experiencing daily life in the United States. Drawing on the people, places and things around him as subject matter, the artist collects every interesting moment of daily life, and culls from this “database” to extract and distill interesting external phenomena and internal experiences through painting, drawing and sculpture. Hang’s work is a reconstitution of a new visual form using invented color and pattern, to mirror his physical and mental states from moment to moment. Furthermore, each artwork features a clever and sincere caption describing his early observations and impressions of day to day life in the U.S.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until March 10.
