Episode- Wesley Tongson: The Journey
“Tongson expresses a deep longing for artistic freedom not bound by set rules or traditions." David Chan, curator
"Wesley Tongson: The Journey" presents the artistic development and journey of the significant Hong Kong ink artist. This highlight in CCC's fall season will exhibit 23 works, some never before seen.
The exhibit, "Wesley Tongson: The Journey" marks the artist’s first solo exhibition in the US for over two decades. Increasingly recognized as an important ink artist, Tongson created emotionally communicative art expressing his personal struggles. In his later “finger painting” works, Tongson abandons the brush and paints directly with his fingers and nails, creating powerful pieces as a channel for healing. This highlight in CCC’s fall programming honors the artist’s poignant legacy and career, offering a look at a master in the making.
