EXHIBIT ON VIEW JUNE 13 – JULY 8, 2024: “Zhuang Hong Yi: East Meets West” at Laura Rathe Fine Art (River Oaks District) celebrates the artist’s innovative use of rice paper, creating mesmerizing sculptures that blend Eastern and Western artistic traditions.

The exhibition highlights the duality of his work: the intricate folding techniques symbolize Eastern craftsmanship, while the dynamic color transformations represent Western modernity. Zhuang’s rice paper sculptures, renowned for their ability to change color depending on the viewer’s perspective, create an interactive and immersive experience.

Each of Yi’s flower beds embody the essence of Eastern art through meticulous paper folding, while the vibrant color shifts of Western artistic sensibilities are a direct inspiration from his time in the Netherlands, where Yi is profoundly inspired by the immense fields of flowers and the continual shift of colors that he sees in nature. Yi’s work has been displayed in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide, earning him acclaim for his artistic vision and technical mastery.

“East Meets West” will also feature a newly released hardcover book, which is a stunning tribute to the career of one of China’s most celebrated contemporary artists. This comprehensive book chronicles the artist’s artistic journey from his early years in China to his later works that have gained worldwide acclaim. The 184-page hardcover book is a must-have for art lovers and collectors alike, providing a rare glimpse into the mind and works of one of the most renowned Chinese contemporary artists today.
