"Flux", a group exhibition of five emerging artists who have come out of the Art Department at La Guardia Community College will open at the Phoenix Gallery in Chelsea on November 28 and will continue through December 22, 2012. The exhibition features the work of Young Choi, Lenka Curtin, Tetsuharu Ohno, Yukiko Kobayashi and Jian Tao Ni.
"In each of these artist's work, there is a quality of passage or continuous change: Young Choi's powerful paintings lyrically transform reality and Lenka Curtin's mixed media constructions explode in vibrant entropy. Tetsuharu Ohno and Yukiko Tobayashi's mixed media works are motion caught in delicate suspension and Jian Tao Ni's moving photographic portraits explore the passage of life into death".
