Eva Kwong Exhibition


Eva Kwong is known for her sensuous, colorful, large and small scale ceramic sculptures, vessels and installations inspired by her longtime interest in the organic forms and colors she sees in nature. Kwong’s glazes can range from subtle greens and browns to bright primary colors. Her thrown and hand built stoneware pieces are often provocative exploring the concept of opposites. Kwong is most well known for her ceramics but she has also made prints.

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright


Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets.
The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku.
The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in 1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.
