Artist Tsui @ The Gallery at Summerlin

tsui.jpgIf you want to see some marvelous paintings by a Chinese artist with 20 years of New York art scene in his work, and meet the artist himself, be at the Gallery at Summerlin Fri May 11 from 6p-9p. George Tsui relocated to Beijing in 1996 to begin “a creative journey into China.” That journey produced a series of works titled “Fair Ladies of the Past,” and showcases Chinese women in the splendor of imperial China. The artist’s “duel technique of painting and sculpture is traditionally ornate yet abstract in the most modern sense.” It is also incredibly beautiful judging by the piece in the promotional materials.

The event is a fundraiser for the Nevada Cancer Institute which will recieve a portion of the proceeds of the Gallery’s sale of Tsui’s art work. In addition, Collectors Editions, the publisher for Tsui, will also donate a portion of sales proceeds to NCI.

Work available for purchase includes oils embellished with antique wood details, unornamented oil paintings, giclees and oil sketches. A giclee is a high resolution reproduction of two-dimensional artwork, utilizing digital scans and special large format printers. They can be printed on a variety of media including canvas, vinyl and transparent acetates. This is a technology vastly superior to traditional lithography both in terms of vividness and longevity of color as well as crispness of detail.
