Julie Huang and James Su are painters who studied art in mainland China, and now work out of their Twin Peaks Studio in San Francisco. Their joint statement for this show at PMA reads:
"Our paintings demonstrate a variety of natural expressions of life ... marine animals, microorganisms, flesh, cells, and organs. We do not pursue the likeness of any particular creature; instead, our aim is to evoke the spiritual, sensory, and overall mystique of life." "From the Chinese tradition, we embody the concepts of "Ch'i" and "Yun", energy and harmony. The flow of "Ch'i" is captured in the white, formless spaces of the paintings. The balance and rhythm of "Ch'i" leads to "Yun", or harmony."
