alchemy + whispHer
December 11th, 2015 – January 30th, 2016 | alchemy + whispHer: Kai Lin Art will be hosting dual solo exhibitions by Elliston Roshi in our main gallery and Lela Brunet in our grey gallery:
alchemy | Elliston Roshi In his first solo exhibition at Kai Lin Art, Zen Buddhist Sensei Elliston Roshi creates a dynamic and transformative body of artworks through sumi ink on glass and gesso panel. Alchemy is defined as the medieval forerunner of chemistry based on the supposed transformation of matter. With his command of materials, Roshi explores emotion and mysticism through the organic behavior of his medium and allows abstracted images to materialize through the natural processes of pigment, movement and water. These pieces are what Roshi sees as “music for the eyes”.
whispHer | Lela Brunet In Lela Brunet’s second solo exhibition WhispHer, she found inspiration studying the Gothic ornamental details found in altarpieces of late Medieval Art. Bold golds, moody reds, graphite and coffee stains all play a role in her exploration into the richness of the female form, their graceful poses and facial expressions. Brunet’s obsessive focus on fine detail, intricate line work and geometric patterning are all on display as she balances darkness and beauty in the soft feminine sweetness of these dynamic works of art.
