A Night in Pictures: Opening Night with Tara McPherson x Xiaoqing Ding

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, 27 Oct 2010

Xiaoqing Ding's "At the End of a Rainbow" featured a collection of large-scale oil paintings and graphite drawings depicting women and foxes in a variety of ethereal situations. The paintings are whimsical and curious, conjuring dream states from some far off land.

 

Tara McPherson churned out a huge body of work for "The Bunny in the Moon," which focuses primarily on her recent stretch of paintings based loosely on biblical allegories and mythology. The figures aren't far off from the heartless girls that McPherson made her name painting, but this series truly translates her character-based paintings into thought-provoking stories, all on a single pane.

 

The show will be on display through November 20, 2010.
