Hailing from New York, Julia Chiang immerses the Midwest this fall with her work via Kansas City’s Bill Brady Gallery. Upon entry to the showspace, you are welcomed by several large “burst” paintings (seen in our studio visit) drawing you directly into the voided spaces within them. Chiang also shows off some new pieces consisting of large scale “fence” paintings alongside her more familiar glazed ceramic “drops” surrounding the space like altars. Julia keeps your attention and eyes confused with “A Word, Your Word #1,2” where she […]

It’s been a while since we caught up (her pop-up project at the New Museum) with New York artist Julia Chiang. So in anticipation of her exhibition opening soon at Kansas City’s Bill Brady Gallery, AM stopped by her Brooklyn studios to check out the new body of work set to be unveiled this Saturday, October 26th from 6-8pm. As you can see from our preview below, Julia has been working hard painting and composing her eye catching “burst” paintings. If you’re lucky enough to be in Kansas City, be sure to […]
Brooklyn artist Julia Chiang recently unveiled a new body of work at New York’s Fuse Gallery. Entitled In And Out And In Between, this latest grouping created seem to be a confluence of styles which Julia has worked on previously.

This unique three dimensional creation gives her flatly painted drops a sense of active movement reminiscent of Claymation. Combine this with Julia’s engaging color choices, this made for […]

One of our favorite pieces featured […]
New York artist Julia Chiang took a moment to send out a holiday greeting. Instead of using ceramic chains to get her ideas across as she did in her Half Gallery show Security is Mostly a Superstition, she used the simple ambiance of Christmas lights to show the LOVE.
Last week Julia Chiang opened her latest show in New York’s Half Gallery. This exhibition Security Is Mostly A Superstition featured a room size installation of hand crafted ceramic white chains measuring in length from five to thirty feet. The idea is to play with the notion that the laid out chains could be perceived to protect or restrain the sacred environment created by Julia. The show runs through May 2nd, so stop by if you can. Also, if you loved Julia’s One Of A […]
