Harmony Between Humans and Nature in the Paintings of Chijia He
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Chijia He in The New Flux. The exhibition opens October 20, 2017 and runs through November 9, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, October 26 from 6-8 pm.
The luminous paintings of Chinese artist Chijia He hearken back to a more simple time, when humans had a closer relationship with nature. Each composition is almost lyrical in nature, blending color, texture, and form to create something utterly harmonious and inexplicably real. Working in an impressionist style reminiscent of both Monet and the American rural painter, Andrew Wyeth. He is a master of light and shadow—an element that has come to be a hallmark of his work.
He grew up near the Peal River (the biggest river in South China), and these environs formed the basis of much of his artistic inspiration. As he describes the setting: “I loved the watery region so deeply. I could feel the violin sounds falling into the river surface; the south wind pushed the summer heat so far away…I loved the elegant colors and simple composition integrated into the deep earth.” Indeed, his art reminds us of all the beauty nature still has to offer.
Chijia He currently lives and works in Dongguan City, China.

About the Exhibition
The New Flux presents a cross-section of different pictorial practices gathered around the theme of nature in urban life. Taking what is specific to a natural setting—a landscape, a body of water—and showing how it impacts the flow or urban life, The New Flux makes a case that our dependency on nature is just as pervasive as our dependency on technology.
