Star Light, Star Bright

Photographic Works of Canada’s Northern Skies by Yuichi Takasaka

“My love of colours in nature led me to my love affair with the Aurora Borealis.  I first saw these strange Lights in Jasper, Alberta in the spring of 1990 and photographed them...."

Still Frames

Works by Stephanie Ho

Stephanie’s recent works relate to her interest in observing human activities of metropolitan city lives, be it in a train station, airport, shopping mall, park or any other public spaces. The people in the paintings showed no expressions. Viewed from a distance, they look the same yet they are different. Just like the woman you sit next to on the bus every morning or the man standing at the opposite side of the platform - strangely familiar.

Three On The Road

Works of Zhang QiKai, Ma Yanling and Wang Yu

Curated by Amy Y. Li

The artists in "Three On The Road" exhibition represent three diversified approaches in art creation. Their specific works are visually different, very much influenced and symbolic of the environs and contacts that the artists subsist at this juncture of time thus heightening the vibes and resourcefulness of their interactions.

Nu Shu = Secret Script

Works of Victoria H. Chang

Nu shu was a secret ‘written’ language invented by uneducated peasant women centuries ago in southwestern China.  Chang’s work examines the visual beauty and metaphorical power of nu shu as a method of blurring the boundaries of Eastern aesthetics with contemporary Western art traditions.

New Ink Works by Lei Ling

Breaking loose from the imageries and limitations that have tied and bound her for two decades, unimpeded,Lei Ling ventures into ideas and themes that, once, seem so distant from her past works. In this exhibition, the delineation of black lines on white space remains but the interpretations are refreshingly different.

Drawn Together

Works of Katie Cheung, Taiga Chiba, Tomoyo Ihaya, Junichiro Iwase, and Shyh-Charng Lo

Drawing can appear in many forms and these five local artists have been brought together to show their diverse, one-of-a-kind pieces ranging from ink on paper and watercolours to mixed media works in a special exhibition much-devoted to the theme of drawing.  The exhibition runs in conjunction with Vancouver’s first-ever drawing festival, ‘DRAWN 2009’ and it is with special delight that we showcase the works of artists so unique to one another, yet all connected by a common thread in drawing.

Selected works by Chen Jianguo

In his new Shadow series, Chen Jianguo, tries to explores into the real meaning of fright. The question that he poses before us is: Fright, is it from the jaws of the predators or from the not-so-frightening but illusive mouth that lurks behind?

Notes of Eastern Dreams

Paintings by Gilles Rieu

He named the main part of the exhibits – Hong Kong, yet the paintings bear no obvious visual resemblance. They were notes of his dreams and experiences out east in Vietnam, Japan and China, especially those from Guangzhou where he stayed for a short duration two years ago.

Drawings - Trees and Water

New Works of Tomoyo Ihaya

Trees and water are recurring subjects in Ihaya’s artworks.  In her eyes, they are symbols of growth and life, essential to human and other creatures’ existence.  Profoundly influenced by her recent travels and life in India, Ihaya’s new series of works are extremely relevant in today’s eco-conscious world, but more specifically pertain to the artist’s personal journey.

Paintings by Frank Burbach

The exhibits consist of works that he painted over the past 13 years.  The forceful brush strokes and delineations, entwining runs of vibrant drips as well as fields of harmonious or contrasting pigments, some seem wild and free but many, when viewers settle their eyes, are patterned and logical.

Floating World

Paintings by Chak

Chak's Statement: "All the air, mountains, waves, fog and clouds that viewers see in my works can be considered as the pride of being Chinese in an age of complete Westernization......."
