Shadow of the Turning: The Art of Binh Pho
Sunday, October 5, 2014 - Sunday, January 4, 2015
Shadow of the Turning is a traveling exhibit featuring an exciting new body of work by Binh Pho blending the mythic worlds of fairy tale, fantasy, adventure and science fiction. Pho, known for an expansive approach to work in wood and glass, features a highly personal iconography, with imagery that relates to Asian culture and the natural world. The story of his journey from an idyllic childhood in Vietnam to his escape to the United States in 1979 is profoundly illustrated in Pho's sculptures. Shadow of the Turning focuses on art, philosophy and storytelling, yet is an entirely fictional story, blending the mythic worlds of fairy tale, fantasy, romance and adventure.
