although things have calmed down quite a bit since the opening several weeks ago, the energy and artwork is still very much alive and present in the exhibition and studio spaces of the swatch art peace hotel, even as shanghai begins to get colder.
being able to see the artwork by some of my most favorite humans as their ‘traces’ are displayed together in one place is a great feeling. the work collected from the combined three years’ worth of past artists-in-residence that have lived and created at the saph in shanghai has completely invigorated the walls with new life.
thrilled to be living and working here again over this upcoming stretch of winter weeks ahead. below are images from the exhibition as well as a painting from my mixed media series of brains in the exhibition catalog and on display.
i’m very pleased to announce my work will be included in the exhibition, FACES & TRACES, hosted at the swatch art peace hotel in their shanghai location on the bund as part of the celebration of the hotel’s 3 year anniversary.
with it’s official opening this weekend, FACES & TRACES will showcase the “traces” selected from the works given to the residency program by it’s 139 former artists-in-residence.
celebrations continue with a street art festival on the Bund.
the exhibition is open to the public from november 1, 2014 through the end of the year.
