Casey Chen: Lazy Dynamite
February 20, 2021 @ 8:00 am – April 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Emerging Sydney-based ceramic artist Casey Chen’s practice references historical illustrations from an eclectic mix of folklore, mythology and pop culture.
For the National Art School 2020 Grad Show, Chen drew upon imagery and motifs from the archetypal tales of the four great classic novels of Chinese literature: Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Journey to the West, Water Margin and Dream of the Red Chamber. His resulting works are both a self-exploration and an homage to the rich and enduring history of Chinese porcelain craft and Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints.
