Dallas Design District Gallery, Laura Rathe Fine Art, announces an introductory solo
exhibition ‘Chromatic Shift,’ featuring new works by internationally acclaimed artist,
Zhuang Hong Yi, with an opening reception on Saturday, September 9 from 5-8pm.
Brilliantly colorful and richly textured, the work of Zhuang Hong Yi has a remarkably
physical presence. His recent ‘flower bed’ works are made of delicate rice paper,
which the artist hand paints and carefully folds into hundreds of tiny flower buds.
The artist densely gathers these elements into dazzling three-dimensional constructions
with colors that shift depending on the viewer’s perspective. This visual play of color
and organic form evokes many of nature’s processes, most notably beautiful gardens
bursting into life. ‘Chromatic Shift’ will be on view through October 7, 2017.

ABOUT THE ARTIST Born in 1962 in Sichuan, China, and based in Beijing and The
Netherlands, artist Zhuang Hong Yi draws influence from both his native China and
his experiences living part-time in Western Europe since the early 1990s. Zhuang
Hong Yi masterfully works in a variety of media, often blending elements of painting,
collage, and sculpture into bold series of works that defy traditional categories. The
work of Zhuang Hong Yi has been collected and exhibited worldwide in such
countries as Belgium, England, Italy, Germany, Spain, and France. A graduate
of the Sichuan College of Fine Arts, Zhuang Hong Yi has also been the subject of
multiple museum exhibitions including at the Found Museum in Beijing, China,
and the Groninger Museum, the Stadsmuseum Zoetermeer, and the Stedelijk
Museum Zwolle in The Netherlands.
