“The Course of a Distant Empire” by Artist Jay Senetchko

Five large-scale paintings influenced by the idea of eternal recurrence by Vancouver-based artist Jay Senetchko. Building from the belief that events are part of a recurring cycle (as opposed to a linear time-line with a definitive end point), the pieces collapse past, present and future into vignettes that oscillate between profession and regression, decadence and destruction. See more images from “The Course of a Distant Empire” below or on display at Winsor Gallery until January 20.

Editor Pick: Su Hyun Kim

South Korean artist Su Hyun Kim challenges our sense of emotional honesty with a series of lively images inspired by patterns of traditional Korean fabric. Playing up the often comical fervor of social and political gatherings, Kim’s paintings encourages us to question our complicity in the scenes with which we both delight and participate.

Discovered via our Submissions section and selected as an Editor Pick. See more images from “To have to hold” below.

Paper-Cast Sculptures of Legs and Torsos Covered in Traditional Chinese Paintings by Peng Wei

Beijing-based artist Peng Wei places traditional Chinese painting on rice paper to create contemporary sculptures of human legs, shoes, and torsos. These paper-cast works display scenes of the natural and domestic, including lush gardens, animals, and interiors of Chinese homes. Peng has been troubled by the adoption of Western styles of clothing by Chinese women. By painting classical Chinese motifs on Western shoes and other fashion-related items, Peng aims to deny the decline of China’s cultural heritage to rapid globalization.

Peg was born in Chengdu in 1974 and graduated from the Eastern art department of Nankai University with a BA in Literature and an MA in Philosophy. Her works have been collected by the National Art Museum of China, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, the Guangdong Art Museum, and many more international collections. You can see more of Peng’s paintings and sculptures on Artsy. (via Lustik)
