Gibson Art Projects proudly announces its first exhibition of the 2017 season with the exciting and dynamic work of Beijing based artist, Feng Jin, who has left behind 20 important pieces he created in Oakland, which will be exhibited between February 26th and March 30th.
Born in Harbin, China in 1966, of Korean descent. Jin's creativity was forged, much like his metal sculptures, with the pressure of growing up Korean in China and being alienated on the playground, forced to find solace in alone time and crafts.
Jin Studied at the Central academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China’s number one art institute.
Jin says “my sculpture is an intimate dialogue between human and the boundless strength of metal, an expression of thoughts, emotions, dreams, passions, destinies and desires that are constantly bounding out of my mind.”
Jin takes the ideas of ancient Chinese culture and forges a contemporary identity through the strengths of his hands, heart and mind.
Refreshments and light snacks will be served. Viewings after the opening are by appointment only. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a private viewing during the month of March.
