Transcultural Practice - The Questioning "Self"(?)

 International curator, PhD researcher and freelance arts writer, Rachel Marsden, has contributed this fantastic article on our exhibition, "老外 - Laowai - Foreigner," which opens at Kraine Gallery in New York this Wednesday, September 19th, 2012.  Here's a selection of her writing.  To read the full article CLICK HERE.

"老外 - Laowai - Foreigner brings together seven artists, four from the New York Academy of Arts (NYAA), New York (USA), and three from China, who engaged in an eleven week ‘Micro Residency of Art’ programme in association with the Fine Art College of Shanghai University, Shanghai (China), and the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), Beijing (China)."

"Kristy Gordon embraces self-reflection through intimate portraiture. Situations and identities are frozen through her honest realist yet dream-like surrealist works. A sense of fragility runs through the brush marks, stating a true emotional connectivity with the subject and almost a sense of fear through the process of self-discovery." - Rachel Marsden
