In the Biblio Gallery: CUSE Quest by Kaiyuan “Harold” Chen

An exhibit by Kaiyuan “Harold” Chen comprised of works on paper inspired by natural forms, creatures, textures, lightness, and darkness is currently on display in the Biblio Gallery on the 4th floor of Bird Library. Chen is a junior majoring in Industrial and Interaction Design and minoring in Painting.

In describing the exhibition, Chen says:

Working on paper is a traditional way of making art. It shows the hand of the artist visually and the personality of the artist mentally. The different textures of paper encourage and inspire me to continue my creative adventure in drawing and painting. Trying a wide range of mediums, such as charcoal, conte, sepia, sanguine, pastels, gouache, acrylic paints and oil paints opened up a whole new world of possibility to me. I encourage students to experiment with as many mediums as possible, enjoy the creative process of making art, and self-expressing.

The exhibit will be on display through the summer.
