An Elegant Awkwardness

Qianqian Hu

May 22 - May 26, 2015

Opening this Friday, Non-Fiction Gallery is thrilled to present the MFA painting exhibition of Qianqian Hu. Hu’s artwork derives from her explorations of human sexuality within an open Western cultural context. Rendering the human form in prints, collage, and acrylics on panels, Hu invites the viewer to explore their understanding of sexuality pertaining to their own culture. Her work comments on the sensual feelings ensconced in pictorial cues and gestures, but leaves the many possible interpretations up to the viewer. 


Artist Statement Excerpt: "As a woman growing up in China, my understanding of sexuality was extremely limited due to the stringency, taboos, and strictures on open sexual expression in my culture. As I make my work, my exploration is rooted simultaneously in affirming and questioning my own experiences.”


RECEPTION: Friday, May 22 | 7 - 10PM

GALLERY HOURS: Saturday, Monday & Tuesday| 1- 5PM

Art & Soul: Artist Creates 'Polyocular' Compositions

EXCERPT: "Thomas Mitz — an accomplished painter, dramatist and musician — stands apart as a triple threat. After spending many years in New York City, this Chicago native came to Savannah for the first time last April to see a production of “The Last Supper,” a musical for which he wrote the libretto, at Asbury Memorial United Methodist Church.


In his first exhibit since moving to the Hostess City, Mitz shares a collection of angular oil paintings and detailed charcoal studies.

'Painting is visual poetry', he asserts. 'It’s a three-dimensional composition on a two-dimensional surface.'"
