Artist Diana Wong’s “Heaven, Earth and US” Opens at the Helms Design Center
October 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Thursday, October 3rd from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, please join us for the opening reception of celebrated Los Angeles-based artist and curator, Diana Shui-Iu Wong, in her exhibition Heaven, Earth and us, a collection of work spanning her career.
Diana was born and raised in Hong Kong, China where she studied painting and calligraphy since she was a child. While enrolling at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, she decided to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome during the 1960s. After she graduated, she traveled Europe for further studies, settling in Los Angeles. Diana went on to found Merging One Gallery in Santa Monica, curating artists from 1986 through 1990. She continues to be involved in community activities, initiating projects for artists, and curating art shows. Her passion is for artistic expression in multimedia work, painting, installation, performance, and film.
As much a filmmaker as painter, Diana was awarded Best Short Film at the Albuquerque Film and Music Festival for her production of, All Seasons Become One. As an international artist of two cultures, Diana’s study of the ancient Chinese philosophy of the I-Ching is often reflected in her work. Through her art and installations, she explores and expresses the introspective qualities of the human psyche and the esoteric elements of change. Her approach to art is the enactment of the intuitive present – being true and fearless.
The installation is available for viewing by appointment only, with open hours during the Culver City Art Walk & Roll Festival on Saturday, October 12th.
