"Four Seasons - A Kaleidoscope of Nature" Showing at RRA, Artist Reception Mar. 22

"Four Seasons - A Kaleidoscope of Nature" features paintings and works on paper by Su-Hua Chen Low.

SUMMIT, NJ - Reeves-Reed Arboretum's (RRA) first art exhibition of the 2014 season, "Four Seasons - A Kaleidoscope of Nature" featuring paintings and works on paper by Su-Hua Chen Low, is currently showing at the Wisner House Gallery of RRA through May 10, with an artist reception scheduled March 22, from 4 to 6 p.m. 

The paintings of Su-Hua Chen Low represent a unique convergence of Western oil painting technique with traditional Chinese landscape art, all in the context of a “musical” idiom.  With a nod to the influence of traditional Chinese water and ink paintings, Chen Low literally “splashes” oil colors onto the canvas creating gentle, rhythmic glazes that flow “musically” without the obvious direction of a brush.  Colors move randomly, improvising beyond the specific intention of the artist.

Touched by Impressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, Fauvism, and the musical rhythm of Abstract Expressionism, Chen Low’s deep love of visual imagery allows her to create passionate works of deep meaning, inherent vitality, and poetic lyricism.   “When I see a tree,” writes Chen Low, “I hear the music of the tree, sense its poetry, and feel its meaning, and that is what I want to portray.”

Chen Low was born in Taiwan, trained with Taiwan master artists Shih-Ciao Li and Ku-Mei Li, and studied contemporary art with Christopher B. Koep.  She is an award-winning artist, and a book of her works was published in 2007.
