Cuong Ta: What You Leave

01/10/2017

 

 

 

Cuong Ta’s ceramic work displays bold patterns that stand out in stark contrast to the roughness of the warm, rich stoneware he employs. Recently, he has incorporated more color to his palette as he explores the idea of the traces of a life, and the idea of transition, whether it is life to death, or from one stage of life to another.

 

The work in this show will tackle this theme in different ways, from the Gates series to the installation on the large wall that recreates a wall of ancestors.  In this show, Cuong invites visitors to participate in creating and adding their own stories of transition to the monument.

 

Reception, Saturday, January 7th 1-5pm

*Saturdays, 1 – 5 pm (The gallery will be closed December 24th)

*Friday, December 2nd and January 6th, 6 – 9 pm, during Oakland Art Murmur’s First Friday art walk.
