Stitched April 28th - May 27th Schorr Gallery: A Textile Invitational

LANDSCAPE OF HUMAN SKINS Spencer Gallery: Solo Exhibition by Kirk Ke Wang

Lighthouse ArtCenter • 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta, FL 33469 • 561-746-3101 • Info@LighouseArts.org

Although the title, Landscape of Human Skins, can feel uncomfortable, it is the perfect metaphor for Kirk Ke Wang’s sensitive abstracts on exhibition in Lighthouse ArtCenter’s Spencer gallery. Employing cast off apparel in his assemblages on canvas, Ke Wang is fascinated by the stories these pieces of clothing could tell. It is in this spirit he paints monumental cataclysmic events, then he deconstructs clothing and applies pieces which could be the skirt from an immigrant’s wedding dress or the sole of a shoe from the World Trade Center. His master works invite your closer inspection. Look carefully and you’ll recognize evidence of hope rising from tragedy in every one of his paint- ings. The invitational exhibition, Stitched, in the Schorr gallery features six- teen professional fiber artists in a celebration of contemporary textiles. Al - though we wrap ourselves in fabrics every day, it is quite possible to overlook the influence they have on our lives. These gifted artists on display are fluent in the language of color, and form. They are gifted commanders of tactile in- tensity, and cohorts in comfort.

If you would like to add selected pieces from this exhibit to your collection you’ll be glad to know most are available for purchase.

Warmest regards,

Janeen Mason, Curator Lighthouse ArtCenter (561) 746-3101 Janeen@LIghthouseArts.org

Landscape of Human Skins

Solo Exhibition in the Spencer Gallery

Kirk Ke Wang was born in Shanghai, but for the last 34 years he has split his time between New York City and Tampa, Florida, where he is an art professor at Eckerd College and a working artist. Mr. Ke Wang describes his artwork as Social Abstracts, a pun on the “Socialist Realism” that surrounded him as a child in China. His artwork amplifies the cacophony of cataclysmic events (hurricanes, tidal waves, or man made disasters) juxtaposed with hope. Look at the devastation in his

pieces which focus on ruin and take notice of the layers of meaning. For example, consider White Hurricane. You’ll recognize the colorful lines that represent the spaghetti models of a storm’s approach, but upon closer inspection you’ll identify hurricane debris, then you’ll notice the fine garments flying, look even more closely and finally you’ll see elegant birds taking flight in the delicate negative spaces above. Beauty survives following tragedy. The deconstructed garments employed in his works serve as a metaphor for the stories they could tell, from the service they provided when they decorated the bodies of the well-to-do, to the day they were purchased from a bin in the local thrift store, where they were donated to cover the bodies of America’s poor. The stories these garments could tell provide the meaningful title of this exhibition, Landscape of Human Skins.
