See works that combine traditional Chinese painting techniques with Western art sensibilities on Tuesday during the free “Experimental Chinese Painting” exhibition in the Scottsdale Community College Art Building, 9000 East Chaparral Road. Traditional Chinese painting features non-centered compositions created with different layers of light and thick ink applied to rice paper using various-size brushes.
Many of these paintings, most created by advanced students studying under Beijing-trained artist and SCC professor Robert You, also feature Chinese calligraphy and the artist’s signature imprinted with a block called a “chop.” While some works reflect traditional Chinese art, others blend Western art with Chinese mark-making.
See the exhibition between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. on October 11. It continues through Thursday, October 27. Visit www.scottsdalecc.edu.
