EMMA SZEYUN LO

Beyond Borders: an Exhibition of Fine Art from Canada
October 9 - October 29, 2015
Reception: Thursday October 15, 2015 6-8 PM

The work of artist Emma SzeYun Lo bridges the divides between East and West, and the classical and modern. Trained in traditional Chinese watercolor painting since the age of eleven, Lo expands the principles and compositional language of Oriental watercolor while updating it with the application of new mediums and techniques. By experimenting with acrylic, pastel, ink, and digital art boards, Lo creates layered pieces that reveal their secrets gradually. Various elements are "hidden" in each piece, only revealing themselves in a particular light or at a certain angle, so that every viewing is a new experience. In this way, Lo emulates her inspirations Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, who experimented with perception, perspective, and vision in their own works. 

A resident of Vancouver, Lo is one of the youngest Lingnan (traditional Oriental watercolor) artists in British Columbia. She is highly aware and concerned for the current cultural loss among younger generations of Asian Canadians, and has used her online presence to continue to reach out to modern and future audiences.
