“KALEIDOSCOPIC DIARIES”

Crossing Art Gallery

559 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10011

Reception October 11 6:00-8:00pm

Featuring artist Adam Eddy, Hochul Lee and James Hsieh.

Crossing Art is delighted to announce: Kaleidoscopic Diaries, a group show featuring three artists — Adam Eddy, Hochul Lee, James Hsieh. Their artworks present an evocative journey that engages both abstract and figurative visual vocabularies, transforming elements borrowed from the everyday world into new forms. Such creative use of media poses textual and material mediation to the reticence of objects, making each artwork optically strange yet inherently familiar, just like looking through a kaleidoscope. The bizarre and fantastical narratives presented in these artworks are inspired by artists’ personal experiences. These whimsical yet compelling stories, however, are not only artists’ contemplation of their pasts and identities, but also windows into new interpretations revolving around materiality and viewership, composing a tantalizing physical, conceptual, and aesthetic diary of each artist.
