Lisa Chandler / China Dream
Beijing comes to Marlborough - China Dream - from hútòng to highrise
Nelson artist Lisa Chandler, is exhibiting a series of paintings based on her artist residency in Beijing last year. The title of the exhibition echoes the phrase ‘Chinese Dream' coined by Chinese President Xi Jinping. Her large scale paintings explore the impact on communities as traditional alleyways (hútòngs) are replaced by highrise buildings, shopping malls and transit stations. Lisa Chandler is an abstract painter concerned with the theory of the ‘non-place'. The ‘non-place' is a concept that describes generic transitional spaces associated with the process of modernity. These spaces are considered to be anonymous places that reflect global culture.
