Hui Chi Lee: the Lián; Liàn Series


Join us at Tranter-Sinni Gallery in the Wynwood Arts District for the anticipated Opening Reception of Hui Chi Lee’s solo exhibition, the Lian Lian series, on Friday, February 16th from 6-9pm. Exhibition is on view through March 5, 2018.


"The second series is titled ‘Lián; Liàn’, which are two Chinese homophones meaning ‘to connect’ and ‘to enchain’. This series of large-scale drawings explores the tensions and dynamics between how people are connected and how these connections themselves may also serve to enchain. In part, this series is a reflection on Taiwanese cultural traditions that can seem oppressive in contemporary society. I use the human figure as an agent to prompt discourse on these conditions." 


"I am interested in the obscure and anonymous quality of the human form, and I want to guide the viewer to consider the subject matter in a critical, holistic manner. I use color in the subject matter in a symbolic, metaphorical way. Red symbolizes both a warning and an awakening moment in life, and hair signifies the duration of a life span and time of which we are often hardly aware – an acknowledgement of the finitude of life but yet a vision of it as somehow endless," explained Hui Chi Lee.
Free and open to the public, RSVP here.
