Here in New York, Chinese contemporary artist Wu Jian’an is exhibiting his extraordinary, large-scale “paper-cut” installations. With his inspiration being channeled from Chinese folk art, more specifically Chinese mythology and the eerily beautiful shadow puppets, Wu Jian’an creates detailed and expressive pieces.
Each of his pieces is created painstakingly by hand using the same traditional methods that were employed in creating shadow puppets out of animal hide. This exhibition is named after his largest piece to date which expresses the transference of power in the world.
The exhibition will continue until October 25th at the Chambers Fine Art gallery in New York City.
