NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Guanzhong Ge in In and Out of the Garden. The exhibition opens May 11 and runs through May 31, 2019 with an opening reception on Thursday, May 16 from 6-8 pm. Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.

About the Artist

With his art, Guanzhong Ge plays the part of societal bystander, independent of bias, preconceptions, and prejudices. He deals in sensitive themes, although not gratuitously, preferring restraint and self-sustainability, providing viewers the opportunity to rely on their own psychological projections.

Guanzhong marries the traditional Chinese and European styles of paintings and frescoes with the contemporary expressions of emotion and composition. His work is a mixture of synthetic materials. He uses ink, watercolor, and mineral pigments to transpose his paranoid interest of magnificent colors and complicated details onto his grand compositions. Those compositions are steeped in metaphor and meaning. They are overt and subliminal. In Show Must Go On and Start Off, Guanzhong pays homage to the wisdom of the ancient traditions as he mingles with the modernity of surrealism.
