'Transcend' is LQM Gallery's most recent show featuring three talented resident artists taking part in the ICAS ( International Contemporary Art Space) residency program. Featuring the works of artists Chen Fuchun, Han Yutong and Yang Peizhang, 'Transcend' showcases a stunning collection of Chinese Ink Paintings from traditional style and subjects to more contemporary arrangements of vibrant color and complex line work. Drawing from nature and life experiences, each artist demonstrates their incredible skill and desire to share their thoughts and visions of the world through their artwork.

Artist Chen Fuchun is a masterful traditionalist in Chinese Ink Painting. With a passion for the beauty presented in life, Chen Fuchun creates images of nature expressed in fluid brush strokes and intricate line work to convey this sense to the viewer. Han Yutong not only works in traditional Chinese Ink styles,
but also utilizes her technique to share her thoughts and experiences as an emerging modern day artist. She draws her stylistic inspiration from traditional Chinese and Western artists as well as from her teachers Chen Fuchun and Yang Peizhang. Han Yutong expresses the pressures of contemporary Chinese women and choices one faces in presenting their self to the world around them. Artist Yang Peizhang also derives inspiration for his work through life experiences as well as sources such as literature and music. This is evident through the combination of rich colors, tones, and expressive line work which blend together harmoniously much like a symphony. As the show's title would imply, their work transcends tradition and technique into masterful displays of life, beauty, and the human experience.
