Coldwell Banker Dupont-Logan is proud to present its ART14 | Summer 2018 exhibit, featuring the work of artist Hsin-Hsi Chen. The art show opens with a reception on Thursday, July 26th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM and continues through the end of October.

Hsin-Hsi Chen is known for her exquisite, illusionary pencil drawings on unique complex constructed 3D forms of paper and wood. Chen’s initial mission was to use only these basic materials and see how far they would take her. Her recent work has evolved beyond 3D drawings to include a variety of scales, two- and three-dimensional work, large-scale/full-room installation, and collaborations using 3D modeling/printing and interactive digital projection. Chen assembles new work that considers the space as a site where light, shadow, space, drawing, and discovery merge.

Chen disorients viewers with actual and imaginary planes of drawing, light, shadow, illumination in illogical sequences of complex 3D structure, installation and interactive dimension to present her interest and vision in riddled paths of existences, the unknown of the universe, surreal, geometric and architectural constructions. The untouchable and invisible time overlaps the unpredictable occurrences and growth in space as the light illuminates those mysterious elements and source of life. The shadow within reflects its subject as the soul to the human being.

“Chen’s highly tuned sense of craft and imagination has already gained her a respectable exhibition record in America, in addition to being awarded the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. She continues to explore her artistic vision as well as bring new relevance to one of the most traditional mediums in the art field—drawing” states N. Elizabeth Schlatter, Deputy Director and Curator of Exhibitions at University of Richmond Museums, VA.

Coldwell Banker Dupont-Logan’s ART14 is an art series developed to highlight local talent. The series is celebrating its 11th anniversary. Coldwell Banker gratefully welcomes our neighbors, clients and friends to share in our enjoyment of this exhibition space.

Coldwell Banker Dupont-Logan is located at 1617 14th St. NW.
