Art@Bainbridge | Between Heartlands / Kelly Wang

Kelly Wang (Wang Jiayi王佳怡) (born 1992, New York, NY; active New York), Life & Death II, 2020. Collection of the artist. | Kelly Wang (Wang Jiayi王佳怡) (born 1992, New York, NY; active New York), Spring Thoughts, 2018. Collection of the Artist.

Kelly Wang combines contemporary and ancient influences, as well as American and Asian traditions, to create multimedia works infused with elements of cultural identity and personal grief. She creates landscapes of the heart that revolve around places, people, or events with which she shares a deep sense of belonging. For the artist, such heartscapes are not natural phenomena but creations of the mind and heart that often generate tensions related to human identity or crisis. These moments give rise to original and experimental works of art that challenge the way we think about heritage and the way we see the world around us. Walking a tightrope between past and future, west and east, Wang explores the boundaries of calligraphy, painting, and sculpture in new ways while confronting life and mourning. Between Heartlands is curated by Cary Y. Liu, Nancy and Peter Lee Curator of Asian Art.
