The Eastern Spirit: Two Artists Meet Asia Half Way

Barbara Tyroler and Chieko Murasugi’s offer work from their individual collections influenced by their mutual connection to form and design. Tyroler presents a selection of photographic composited portraits from her major body of work, the Beijing Impressions series, a visual response to the poetic translation of a young Chinese woman’s personal memoir during a time of political repression in her mother country. As translated from Mandarin to English by China scholar and collaborator, Samm Sacks states,” Of particular interest is Bai’s indulgence with the sub-conscious and her candor in expressing feelings of such private intimacy within a society of emotional suppression.” Two new pieces integrate the paintings of Murasugi.
