YAN-PEI-MING, a Chinese artist who divides his time between China and France,
has his first exhibit in nEW YORK at DAVID ZWIRNER . . . and it seems to be apylt
titled: ‘You maintain a sense of balance in the midst of great success’ . !!
MS. HUBERT, who is a Partner/Director at DAVID ZWIRNER, and who also happens
to speak fluent French, was translating for MR. PEI-MING, who speaks French and
Chinese, at a very charming and funny Q & A just before the show’s opening, last
Monday may 14, 2007.
They are standing in front of MR. PEI-MING’S series of large scale watercolors:
‘American Dollars 2007’. YAN PEI-MING said, .. when he first worked on them,
he didn’t know the meaning of the denominations – but that he DOES NOW !!!
Apparently, it’s his first trip to New York City and MS. HUBERT says … “He’s loving it !!”
the large black & white watercolors and 2 big monchrome self-portraits are up thru JUNE 16, 2007.
