DESCRIPTION

The exhibition at 540 West 26th Street comprises the work of three artists – Hernan Bas, Anne Chu, and Klara Kristalova – connected by a shared interest in the wildly imaginative nature of storytelling, and the visual fusion of fantasy and reality in a narrative context. While all three artists look to literature as a primary source of inspiration, Bas’s fascination with the paranormal and bizarre traces back to his childhood; Chu draws from a wide range of cultures and eras, referencing ancient mythological and ritualistic tales; and Kristalova mines the lost territory of childhood dreams, memories and nightmares. The works on view include new drawings by Hernan Bas, completed during a recent residency at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas; a vibrant series of oil and egg tempera paintings, watercolors and sculptural works by Anne Chu; and a selection of glazed stoneware and porcelain sculptures by Klara Kristalova.
