Japan: Images from a Visual Journal
The Roswell Teahouse
Featuring work by: Jan Kapoor

Exhibition: Tue, Oct 6, to Sat, Oct 31 2009

"The moon and sun are eternal travelers. Even the years wander on. A lifetime adrift in a boat, or in old age leading a tired horse into the years, every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home."

These words were written by the poet Basho some 500 years ago in his diary Oku no Hosomichi, Journey into the Far North.

I wrote this passage in the front of the journal I began when I traveled to Japan in October 2007; the words echoed in my mind as, at the beginning of my journey, I attempted to follow in Basho’s footsteps north to the temples of Motsuji and Chusonji, then on to Matsushima.

Every day was indeed a journey: into the past of a thousand years ago in Nara and Kyoto; into the timeless crafts of sumi ink and brush making; into a very special world of music and tea ceremony; into the 16th century world of a mountain village; and into the hyper-modern world of Tokyo and Shinjuku.

These images are a few of those that captured my eye and heart, a body of work that I have named Japan: Images from a Visual Journal.

Chi Peng: Journey to the West
Kiang Gallery
Featuring work by: Chi Peng

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 9, to Sat, Nov 21 2009

Chi Peng, b.1980, is an internationally recognized artist, known for his surrealistic staged photographs.

Journey to the West is based on a 16thc. Chinese mythological fantasy about a monk accompanied by a monkey, a pig and a friar, who combat demons and dragons, on pilgrimage to the land of the Buddhists. The Monkey King, a boy who transforms himself into a magical monkey is the hero of the modern animated version, from which Chi Peng draws his inspiration,(not the ancient novel). The Monkey King is able to transformation himself into anything he imagines and defeats all enemies. Chi Peng uses the Photoshop to generate his magical images blending magical monkeys and monsters and Buddhas and modern settings together into formats reminiscent of ancient scroll paintings. They are made magical in content by the artist’s magical use of modern technology, the artist’s primary tool bringing the ancient story to life. Barbara Pollack says, “In his hands, the Journey to the West becomes the quintessential story of China today, ever changing and reinventing itself as a country venturing forward into the 21st century”.
