In the presence of the artist
Alisan Fine Arts is proud to present our fourth solo exhibition of recent paintings by Chinyee, an American Chinese, female artist whose work has been esteemed by critics as Lyrical Abstraction. Chinyee's work is permeated with influences from both East and West. Her loose, unformulated brushstrokes reflect both Asian brush techniques and years of careful study of modern abstraction. The symphonic, colourful, and optimistic aura of her works is edged with dynamism. Through her work, one may glimpse the spontaneity of Willem de Kooning, the poignancy of Joan Mitchell, and the spaciousness of Mark Rothko. For this exhibition we will be showing a body of new works, both on canvas and on paper.
Artist's Statement: Painting to me is a process of discovering, shaping and reshaping my inner being. I work spontaneously—starting with a line or a dot, similar to Chinese calligraphy, from left or right. Then I let the drama begin to develop among the colours and lines under my subconscious control. I seek in my work rhythm, harmony among conflicts, lines with energy, and even surprise. I chose to do abstract painting and it is still the best form of my expression. The charm of abstract paintings is that visually they are vague, uncertain, intuitive. The language utters energetic rhythm, subconscious cries, and subtle poems.
