ZEQUN WU

Emerging Visions
December 29 – January 14, 2016
Reception: Thursday, January 7, 2016 6-8 PM

In his work, Zequn Wu brings the essence of Chinese painting to the landscapes of the United States. An immigrant from China, Wu sees the goal of his ink-on-paper paintings as increasing “the understanding, appreciation, and acceptance of Chinese painting” by a Western audience. He achieves that goal by maintaining the techniques of the art he grew up with. In a close relationship to his materials, Wu pays careful attention to the qualities of ink itself and the changes it can embody - from light, feathery strokes to dark, shadowy areas, from wet to dry. In the mood of his paintings, Wu is focused on staying true to the emphasis on communicating emotions that characterize Chinese painting.

The subjects that Wu depicts give the emotional tones of traditional Chinese painting a new life. Showing us such scenes as a New England village, a New York cityscape, or the Grand Canyon, Wu creates a distinctive bridge between the world that shaped his vision and the one he is present in now. That contrast results in a multi-cultural body of work that is universal in its appeal.
