Title: Deep Forest

Ward-Nasse Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition "Shining Light on What's Dark" by artist Michael Lam

Michael Lam moved from the East to New York City over 20 years ago, where he began to develop his own style around calligraphy and Single Stroke Painting. Drawing on a strong background in calligraphy (which Lam first learned at the age of 7), he began to create pieces that were abstract expressionistic in nature yet highlighted by strong figurative elements.

In the art world, Lam is considered a master of Single Stroke Painting, a technique in which an entire painting is created in a single brush stroke. To be successfully executed, this type of painting requires mastery of paper, ink, brush, and the pressure with which the ink is applied, much like musical instruments must be calibrated and synchronized to create an orchestral work. Even when Lam is not painting using this technique, its influence is noteworthy in his work, as compositional harmony and rhythm are centerpieces of his unique artistic style.

June 1 through August 31, 2015 at Ward Nasse Gallery, NYC.

Opening Reception: Friday June 5, 2015 6:30-9:30 pm
