Chambers Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening on May 6, 2021 of Wang Gongyi: Multitudes.  This will be the artist’s second exhibition in New York. Born in Tianjin, China in 1946, Wang Gongyi received her master’s degree from the Department of Printmaking at the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Art in 1980, and stayed on to teach after graduation.  After periods as artist-in-residence at the Museum of Oregon State University and the Pacific Northwest College of Art, she moved permanently to the US in 2001 and is now based in Portland.

The current exhibition is devoted to two bodies of work – Wang Gongyi’s ink and calligraphy works on Xuan paper, the medium through which she first gained recognition, now increasingly distilled into simple, pure forms of expression, and a series of paintings on silk called Leaves of Grass, a collection of poetic reflections on recent and current events.
