混沌: Chaos and Delight – Closing Party
Closing Party – March 3, 2023 6pm-Late FREE admission
Brick Aux proudly presents 混沌: Chaos and Delight, a solo gallery exhibition by visual artist Shawna Tang.
Join us Saturday, March 3 from 6pm until we fizzle out for the closing party! Last chance to view and purchase art from this show, have some drinks, snacks and meet the artist!
混沌: Chaos and Delight explores, in candy colored and fuzzy tufted works, the joy in relinquishing boundaries and re-mixing opposing forces: heaven and earth, ancient and modern, American and Chinese, craft and fine art.
In Chinese mythology, at the beginning of time there was only 混沌 (hùn dùn), a roiling primordial chaos encapsulated in an egg. When the egg was split, great pains were taken to keep light and heavy, sky and earth separated. As a mixed race Taiwanese/Chinese and white American, my two halves are often likewise separated; sometimes by external forces and sometimes by my own anxieties from living in a deeply racialized country. This show marks my readiness to shed racial anxieties and freely participate in my culture through pieces that celebrate Chinese art and mythology. “混沌: Chaos and Delight” explores, in candy colored and fuzzy tufted works, the joy in relinquishing boundaries and re-mixing opposing forces: heaven and earth, ancient and modern, American and Chinese, craft and fine art.
