Event Description

The exhibition, Drenched: Monumental Watercolors by Paul Ching-Bor, features recent highlights of the diasporic Chinese artist whose enormous watercolor paintings which consist of oversized paper sheets as large as ten feet tall and four feet wide. These sheets are often placed side by side to form mural-sized diptychs, triptychs, and quartets.

Ching-Bor’s pictures look “drenched,” according to art writer Gerard Haggerty, who contributed an essay to the exhibition brochure. “The verb describes the artist’s working method, for he soaks large sheets of rough, heavyweight watercolor paper with washes of gray and jet black ink. Layer upon layer, intermingled with opaque paint, saturates the huge pages.” For his subject matter, Ching-Bor has focused on the empty space where Twin Towers of the World Trade Center once stood. The light shedding onto the missing skyline gives those paintings elegiac tranquility.
