Claire Feng: Happy People
Member’s Gallery (upstairs) at School 33
March 5 – April 2, 2010

Claire Feng questions what is beyond the obvious in an image. People take snapshots mostly to record pleasant moments in their lives. From these ordinary images of leisure and contentment, she chooses the ones to which, with the medium of painting, she can inject her personal reading. Through expression and gesture rooted in realism, her painting gives breath and energy to these fleeting moments. It is her way to explore perception and deception, disclosure and elusiveness, appearance and the unknown.
