The Other Side of the Earth paintings by Chun Arthur Wang

Chinese-born Chun Arthur Wang often travels back to his motherland to find inspiration and subject matter. While some works in this exhibition carefully capture moments of rural life in China, as experienced by the artist or gleaned from his travels through areas inhabited by ethnic minorities, other works depict more romanticized scenes of a dreamy world of peace and contentment.  His focus on ordinary country people who embody Chinese cultural values and dwell in a pristine environment provides a sharp contrast to present day urban China.
