Z.Z. Wei: Shadow Stories

Through June 10, 2018 – Temporary Exhibition Gallery

Born and educated in China, Z.Z. Wei’s views of America allow us to see the hopefulness of a newcomer. His paintings transport us to a place where time stands still. His compositions portray quiet, yet powerful images reminiscent of a whimsical, rural America. Richly complex, they are filled with humor and loneliness, peacefulness and pain. They balance half in shadow, half in light, tempting us to experience a unique and timeless look at life.
