New Moon and Palm Trees by Sharon Ellis

On our way out, we almost missed a small show by emerging Chinese painter Song Kun, who filled a small gallery with 97 daily paintings of her life…fabulous! Her work ranges from part drawn, part painted canvases to fully realized and very well-done representational works to a number of blank canvases. At first, I took one quick pass through the gallery, intending that to be it; then went back and looked at each painting more closely, then went back again, by this time fully drawn into her mesmerizing paintings. This was my favorite art of all that I’ve seen on this coastal trip!

  • What interests me most about this presentation is the way the composition is broken up. The big fragmented subject contrasted against open ground, the almost dripping cracks, strangely dimensional shapes growing from the edges. I feel like I’m looking at some strange organism coming to eat me.
