Art New England Review






Shiao-Ping Wang
"Koan" mixed media 24"x48"


At the end of 2005, artstream had a very special exhibition. OK ... I think they are all very special! This one however, spoke volumes as a group, as well as each individual's work standing alone. I try very hard in each exhibition to make a cohesive, compelling and moving statement as a whole - but I think this one worked a little better than any of the others last year. I am showing you my favorite painting of 2005 above - Koan by Shiao-Ping Wang. It is simply stunning.
Awhile back, I featured a snippet about Adam Pearson's sculptures from that same show here. Shiao-Ping Wang will be a featured artist here with an interview, at some point, so look out for her work! You can read about what I thought of the exhibition, Conversations, here at our site. You can read a very literate, fresh, hot-off-the-press review by Margaret McCann at Art New England here. The exhibition is the State Spotlight review for this issue. Thank you ,Margaret!

The word for the day is ... patience ... as it is a virtue, an acquired thing, and something we could all use a little more of.
