Human Relations within Big Cities in the Artworks of Jiantao Qu
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Jiantao Qu in Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition. The exhibition opens August 19, 2017 and runs through August 30, 2017 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 19 from 6-8 pm.
When Jiantao Qu left his small village for Beijing, he became fascinated by the patterns formed by large crowds. He began to incorporate the crush of the crowd into his work, manipulating its flow and redistributing his figures in geometric configurations. Marked by faded pastel colors, his work reveals both the individual and the wider picture. “I try to describe human relations,” Qu says. “The relationship between human beings and cities, as well as the relationship between human beings and the world.”
Jiantao Qu lives and works in Beijing, China.

About the Exhibition
Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition
This August Agora Gallery presents the selected artists of the 2017 Chelsea International Fine Art Competition. As in years past, the work on display is of incredible variety and extraordinary skill. There are precise, spare drawings in the same gallery as maximal, playful sculptures. There are monochrome, graphic paintings that explore repetition hung near hyper realistic still lifes that take inspiration from the classics of centuries past. There are imagined lands and images of human moments that ring with truth. Even two selected landscape photographers defy comparison - some produce stoic, black-and-white views of single trees, while others create expansive vistas in full color. The 2017 jurors' picks share nothing except fearlessness, adroit execution, and unforgettable originality.
